    How does herbicide damage manifest? Does it look similar across the board or dependent on what plant is affected?

      David did a video recently that he shows the picture of what the damage looks like.

      May want to go 4 weeks in testing, I have heard from a friend that they had the damage happen late in the growth.

        Thanks.. I should have added the video to the post. David the good’s video is why I am trying it. I read a bunch of articles about it 🙁. Glad I saw in the video that beans are more susceptible to Grazon. The horse compost has been in a trash can for a year because i didn’t want to add it without testing and wasn’t sure how to do it. I can get more from the horse stable this winter… I’ll keep it separate till the spring when I can test that batch.

        I believe the real danger is from an ingredient in some formulations of Grazon (and other herbicides), that being aminopyralid, so perhaps we should be using the chemical name rather than a brand name which may not encompass all market names to be wary of. (kind of like talking about Benadryl, when meaning diphenhydramine. Just a thought.

        Very true.. aminopyralid is the issue. For some reason Grazon seems to be the one mentioned in articles.

        Milestone : (Dow/Corteva) – also sold as a residential lawn/garden use chemical.

        Opensite : (Corteva) – Forestry

        DuraCor – (Corteva) – Forestry

        Highnoon – (Corteva) – Forestry

        “Grazon” (some formulations)

        In the UK it is sold under the brand names Banish, Forefront, Halcyon, Pharaoh, Pro-Banish, Runway, Synero, and Upfront.

        Many years ago I had a commercial herbicide license for work, I was amazed at all the formulas and boy do they love to come out with a newly named product each year… I had not heard of Corteva but when I searched the first name that came up was Matrix. Hard to ask someone if they are using a certain thing when they know it by another name. Shame what we are doing to our land.

        and our bodies. We get micordosed everywhere we turn, in the water, air, food. Ultimately what that will do is, once it’s proven to the level courts could hold companies and individuals accountable, it will be impossible to nail down what disease came from what chemical applied by whom, marketed by whom.. so make all the profits, pay none of the liability. But it wouldn’t work, if we didn’t pay for the products.

        Tomatoes react to it too. It’s designed to kill dicots.
