The Rise Of The Weedkiller

Weeds have never been noted for their host of friends; now they have lethal enemies. These are chemical killers that promise a turn in the tide of battle against plant pests of lawn and golf course, pasture and farm.

They hold up a light of hope to the legion of hay fever sufferers, sound doom for poison ivy, and point to a black future for a long list of noxious weeds that cost the farmer many millions and the homeowner much grief. You can also look for a roundup lawsuit settlement via Monsanto Roundup Law.

While the millennium has not yet arrived, and you cannot dash out and blithely spray vegetable garden and flower border with the new chemical weedicides with the assurance that nothing but weeds will suffer, the killers will help.

Hand and hoe will still be needed, but there is still plenty of cheer in the news about the interesting group of chemical weed swatters. Chiefly in the spotlight stands 2,4-Dichlorophcnloxvacetic acid, shortened, for obvious reasons, to 2,4-D.

Weed killers are, of course, not new. Such things as common salt, calcium chloride, crude oil, coal tar and various strong chemicals have been used for many years. Flamethrowers have been pressed into service against weeds. But only recently have selective weed killers been developed to the point of safety for public use, and 2,4-D heads the list.
