Chemical Protection of Crop Plants from Postemergence Herbicide Injury by Decreasing Foliar Retension and Ultimately Absorption by the Crop Plant
Description of Technology
Michigan State University’s invention is a composition for protecting cultivated plants and is comprised of an herbicide and a repellant adjuvant that reduces retention of the composition on the foliage of the cultivated plant.
- Protects cultivated plants from herbicidal damage
- Especially useful when a plant is at a vulnerable stage of growth
- potential to reduce volume of herbicides utilized in a spray operation due to decrease in foliar retention
This technology would be useful as a herbicide for cultivated crops, such as turfgrass, food plants, ornamental plants, and garden plants.
