SKU A3286

Author(s) M. F. Heimann, R. C. Newman.

When the herbicides used to kill broadleaf weeds in the lawn are applied on windy or hot days, they may end up coming in contact with more than their intended target. At extremely low levels, these herbicides won't kill the plant, but they may cause twisted, distorted growth. This publication provides pictures and descriptions of the full range of symptoms on a variety of plant species (4 pages; 1997).
