    Auxin herbicide exposure: comparisons of 2,4-D and dicamba drift to flue-cured tobacco

    VANN M.C.(1); JORDAN D.L.(1); FISHER L.R.(2)
    (1) North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.; (2) NC Agriculture Research Service, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Auxin herbicide application has increased in North Carolina due to the commercialization of 2,4-D and dicamba tolerant crops. Flue-cured tobacco is extremely sensitive to both herbicides, yet is commonly grown in close proximity to genetically...
