Industry Task Force II on 2,4-D Research Data

2,4-D is an inexpensive and effective option for controlling problematic aquatic weeds


2,4-D has been a key asset in Florida’s efforts to reduce hydrilla infestations from 100,000 acres to 21,000 acres.

Were 2,4-D unavailable, states would have to either increase their budgets for aquatic weed control by a factor of 13, or drastically reduce the acreage they treat.

“The loss of 2,4-D for aquatic applications would result in a significant increase in the cost of aquatic plant management. That has not changed over the last 20 years”
