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)
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.
