Palmer amaranth, a new weed to Iowa and a serious threat to production agriculture, has now been discovered in at least 48 counties. Farmers, farmer advisers and others interested in learning how to identify and manage this new threat may attend a workshop at several eastern Iowa locations.

ISU Extension and Outreach is hosting a Palmer Amaranth identification workshop Sept. 23 in Central City. This workshop will cover new discoveries of Palmer amaranth across the state, key traits to differentiate the common amaranth species in Iowa from Palmer amaranth, and management in both crop and non-crop areas.
