Illinois grower seeing worsening waterhemp

Waterhemp is becoming a tougher weed to deal with in the Midwest.

Central Illinois farmer Ron Kindred tells Brownfield waterhemp seems to be building resistance in his fields.

“We’re spraying Liberty right now; I use the 36 ounce rate,” he said. “It looked like we had killed everything and I just went back and looked at some fields yesterday and it looks like I’m going to have to respray at least around the outside of them.
