Red-root amaranth (AMARANTHUS RETROFLEXUS)

It is found primarily among root vegetables and maize plants. It is rarer in summer cereals and among legumes. The red-root amaranth is an annual summer plant. It likes sunlight and high temperatures very much. If it is not effectively controlled, one must be wary of crop yield reductions and complications with mechanical harvesting. It can be seen practically on all kinds of soils, however, it prefers lighter soils that are nitrogen rich. The Usual and commonly used name is the amaranth – its seeds are valued among health food followers.

The red-root amaranth is a weed in terms of crops, and it can cause much damage. It competes with the crop to get the nutrients from the soil. Due to its high expansiveness, control must be initiated as early as possible. If the considered plantation is large, spray treatments using herbicides are effective.
