Palmer amaranth status in Ohio

As of late 2015, Palmer amaranth had been found in at least 11 counties in Ohio.  A “find” can consist of a few plant or a few fields depending upon the county.  Populations are increasing in some counties, but in others the eradication of the few plants that were found has occurred.  Current information on the status of Palmer amaranth in Ohio, along with a brief summary of the properties that make it a “super weed” and a heads up and the programs needed for management, can be found in this Powerpoint pdf and the video shown here.
