IN MORE THAN 20 years of research on the chemical control of plant growth, many hundreds of compounds with herbicidal activity have been tested on woody plants and then fallen into obscurity. The standard of comparison for all new chemicals has been and remains 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and related chemicals. Their physiological activity, although less than desired, is superior to any other compounds screened.
