​Amaranthus palmeri is a very troublesome weed in cotton production on the Texas High Plains. New seed and herbicide technologies could soon allow cotton producers to use the HPPD herbicide isoxaflutole. Adding isoxaflutole to these systems could allow added control of A. palmeri and provide an option not previously available in cotton production.
