JPG- Plant Injury From Herbicide Residue

This publication is available in a PDF file format only.

In recent years, an increased number of cases of injury from herbicide residue in straw/hay, manure, and compost have been diagnosed in the Virginia Tech Plant Disease Clinic. Growers are surprised and dismayed to learn that manure, straw, mulch, or other amendments intended to improve their garden or
landscape might have such unforeseen consequences. Of particular concern to organic growers are herbicide residues.
