Amaranthus tuberculatus

Species Overview :-    

 Amaranthus tuberculatus is an annual dioecious herb which has spread from its native range in northern North America and is considered a major weed of crop fields in the midwestern United States. It is commonly known as rough fruit amaranth, rough-fruited water-hemp, tall waterhemp, or common waterhemp, is a species of flowering plant. In the mid-western USA it has become increasingly difficult to control over the past 10 years due to a persistent seed bank and the development of resistance to certain herbicides. A. tuberculatus seed is a known contaminant of soyabean seed and other grains, and has been accidentally introduced and become naturalized in parts of West Asia and Europe.
