2,4-D is an important tool for weed control in pastureland, rangeland, and alfalfa forage. Losing it would mean increased cost for producers both small and large. To manage noxious or invasive species, between 11 and 20 million pounds of 2,4-D are applied annually.
“Over half of the United States’ land area consists of pastures, rangeland, alfalfa, or natural areas. Any scenario without 2,4-D would significantly increase costs to applicators, and increase the negative effects of weeds and noxious or invasive plants across the United States.”
