Waterhemp popping up throughout Ohio

Keep an eye out for this weed! I’ve
found waterhemp in many parts of the state, not just western Ohio.

As I have been asking farmers about this weed, I have
estimated that over 90 percent of them don’t know how to identify it. It
appears that we are in a similar position this year with waterhemp as we were
with marestail five to seven years ago.  

I believe that with some awareness and preventative measures focused on
waterhemp we can help prevent this weed from becoming a large problem as
marestail did.

learn more about waterhemp and how best to handle it on your farm.
