Palmer Amaranth is a pesky pest that can devastate crops, and when this sneaky pest’s seeds creep into animal feed, they can find their way into unsuspecting farmers’ fields. This episode, Drs. Anthony Brusa and Melissa Wilson give us the inside scoop on what farmers can do when they find out they’ve fed their animals contaminated feed.
Tune in to learn:
· What makes palmer amaranth such a hearty pest
· What methods work best to remove seeds from contaminated manure
· What makes it difficult to separate amaranth out from liquid and bedded manures
· What future research still needs to be done to stop the spread of palmer amaranth
