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

Although 2,4-D sees less use in vegetable crops, it remains an important tool for its ability to manage weeds that have become resistant to other herbicides.


Alternative herbicides remain significantly more expensive than 2,4-D. Loss of access to 2,4-D in asparagus crops would have a net loss of $6-8 million per year.

Vegetable Crops

“This herbicide provides excellent control of many dicot annual and perennial weeds in both…asperagus and sweet corn. The elimination of troublesome broadleaf weeds allows for good crop growth, yield and economic return.”
