Occasionally, herbicides like 2,4-D drift beyond their target, and for nearby vineyards the results can be devastating.</p><p>2,4-D is a common herbicide used by farmers because it kills weeds but doesn’t kill their corn.

Highway crews often spray 2,4-D on road ditches.</p> Mon, 26 Aug 2013 15:39:00 +0000 Grant Gerlock 7786 at http://wuis.org Vineyards Face Threat From Herbicide Drift
