The University of Arkansas has launched an herbicide injury image database, https://plants.uaex.edu/herbicide/default.aspx, to help users identify potential off-site movement of several herbicides.

Users can search from among several drop-down menus: herbicide group, herbicide, plants, and plant/herbicide.

The images are designed to represent expected plant responses to mostly lower-than-labeled rates of herbicides on various plans.

The sites’ authors were quick to point out that plant responses to herbicides can vary due to environmental conditions, plant size, herbicide rate and other factors. So symptoms can vary from application to application.

Website authors are Dr. Cal Shumway, Dr. Bob Scott and Dr. John Boyd, all with the University of Arkansas.
