Weeds are less likely to become resistant to 2,4-D, making it an integral part of weed control in high intensity crops like corn and soybean. 2,4-D is inexpensive and effective, particularly for producers of low-acreage crops where new herbicides are not being developed. The loss of 2,4-D would significantly hinder production for these producers.
