​Waterhemp Management​​

Common (Amaranthus rudis) and tall (Amaranthus tuberculatus) waterhemp are native species adapted to various conditions across the United States. Waterhemp’s native habitat is wet, low-lying areas but it has also adapted to reduced and no-till conditions. Waterhemp can be distinguished by the glossy, long, hairless, narrow leaves and stems. Waterhemp species are dioecious, meaning male and female flowers are on separate plants, and two plants always mix genes during reproduction. This increases diversity within populations and the potential to spread resistance and other survival genes. Pollen can move up to 1/2 mile during windy conditions.
