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.
