Technical Abstract: Glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth is now present in throughout the Southeast. Hundreds of thousands of conservation tillage cotton acres, some currently under USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) conservation program contracts, are at risk of being converted to higher-intensity tillage systems. The shift to higher intensity tillage facilitates seed burial as well as preplant incorporated and preemergence herbicide control of this problematic weed, especially in dryland cotton production.
