Abstract

The use of 2,4-D and related compounds to control weeds competing with grain and rice has resulted in an increased value of those crops to growers; but also it has resulted in damage suits filed by growers of crops susceptible to 2,4-D—cotton, grapes, tomatoes, and others—grown near rice or grain fields.
