Waterhemp is a summer annual weed species that has become problematic across much of the corn growing region of the Midwest. This session describes the management of waterhemp in contemporary corn production systems. The session includes a discussion of several biological characteristics of waterhemp in the context of how these characteristics can influence the success or failure of management programs that rely exclusively on herbicides. Herbicide-resistant waterhemp populations are becoming increasingly common, which adds additional challenges to developing an effective waterhemp management program for corn.
