FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., June C. —Don't try to control weeds in >our cultivated fields by fill'lg a spiaycr with 2,4-D, the new chemical weed killer, and spraying the area, the Arkansas Experiment Station warns. There's loo much dan-" Bcr of injuring valuable crop plants by residue left In the spraying equipment, drifting of the materials during spraying, or absorption by plant roots. For example, William J. Wiser, station agronomist, reports that washing spray equipment \von't remove all I lie residue. A galvnniv.ed iron sprayer in which 2,4-D had been used was washed three limes with hot water and soap, but when it was used a few weeks later- to nil Inseclickle on some sensitive plants they were Injured. Tomato and cabbage plants In the greenhouse were hurt by fumes coming from a wheelbarrow sprayer |« which 2.4-D had been used, although the sprayer had been re- jealedly washed with soap and vater and chemical solutions. Crop plants such as cotton, soy- >eans, cowpeas, Icspedc/a and other .•lovers, most vegetables, and many ornamental plants are easily Inured by spray drilling from a near)y area. A very gentle brecx- 1 can carry enough of the material to sensitive plants, while airplane applications may result In conslcl- erable damage. In March, an emulsion of 2,4-El was sprayed on an experiment a' grass plot at the station, und In _ May roses 25 feet away and grapc- j vines 50 feet away showed Injury " on their secondary shoots. In another instance, when the chemical was applied allng a fence row, cotton on the opposite of the fence was damaged. No lint was produced on the injured cotton.
