Coyne, D.P. and Burnside, O.C. (1968) Differential plant injury and yield responses of tomato varieties to 2,4-D (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 226)


ISSN 0097-1557


Experiments reported in this bulletin were conducted to determine the extent of plant injury and yield loss due to high and low rates of 2,4-D sprays on a wide range of home garden and processing tomato varieties. Results of this study could be used as a basis for suggesting tomato varieties suitable for growing in areas where 2,4-D drift is a common problem. An experiment was also conducted to determine if there was resistance to or good recovery from 2,4-D injury in other tomato species and in a wide collection of tomato plant introductions.
