Eliminating Invasive, Noxious and Non-Native Weeds

2,4-D reduces the risk invasive species present to people and the environment. It promotes environmental values such as endangered species protection and sustainability, especially where crop production and management are concerned.

Noxious weed is a legal term used by county, state and federal agencies to denote invasive or non-native plants that pose serious threats to agriculture, native species, wildlife and roadsides.
