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.

Author notes

Personnel of Agricultural Engineering made the studies and recommendations of aircraft spray equipment and also developed the continuous wind direction and velocity attachments for the spot climate recorder.
