Without 2,4-D, applicators would need to switch to more expensive alternative herbicides and would likely result in decreased crop yields. An extraordinary amount of data supports its continued registration. That data has been rigorously evaluated and re-evaluated. Global regulatory agencies have consistently found the compound to pose no danger to human health when used according to label directions.
