Description

Crop injury resulting from herbicide carryover is a function of four variables: 1) the herbicide residue persisting from one year or crop to the next (or the herbicide concentration in soil at the time of planting); 2) the availability of the herbicide for uptake by the germinating seed, emerging seedling, or young plant; 3) the sensitivity of the follow crop to the herbicide; and 4) the environmental conditions in the early part of the growing season. These four factors interact to determine the potential for or the severity of injury due to carryover.
