Identifying Palmer Amaranth in The Field

This video was shot near Twelve Mile, IN (Cass County) on July 11, at a field heavily infested with Palmer Amaranth. This location allowed us to capture the various growth stages and identifying characteristics of this very aggressive weed. We encourage you to view this video in order to distinguish Palmer from other pigweed species, especially common water hemp. If you think you have found an infestation of Palmer Amaranth in Indiana, take multiple, in-focus, photos of the plant's characteristics outlined in this video along with location information and email to Bill Johnson (wgj@purdue.edu) or Travis Legleiter (tlegleit@purdue.edu). This will help us assess and share the extent of this weed's presence in the state.

Spots on Corn: Disease or Drift?

This video shot during the spring in west central Indiana illustrates some points about the similarities and differences of what may have caused leaf spotting on corn leaves. The diagnostic process is presented by Kiersten Wise, Purdue Plant Pathologist, and Travis Legleiter, Purdue Weed Specialist, to better determine the cause for round, necrotic spots on corn leaves, whether Holcus leaf spot or Gramoxone drift. The good news is that minor leaf spotting from either cause will not worsen and is of little concern to the corn field's yield potential.​
