Abstract

The selective phytocidal properties of certain growth-regulating substances were confirmed when Slade, Templeman and Sexton (1945) found in 1940 that applications of 25 lb. naphthylacetic acid per acre to oats weedy with charlock (Brassica sinapis) killed the weed without causing permanent injury to the crop. Within two years of this work investigators in both England and America had recognised the strong growth-regulatory and herbicidal effects of chlorinated phenoxyacetic derivatives.
