Identifying Herbicide Injury in Potato Production

In this article I will explain and show specifically what the responses of potato plants are to some common modes of action. Understanding what the mode of action is can help narrow down the type of herbicide and how it can affect plant and tuber growth. I discuss some common translocating herbicides I often observe when determining injury in potato plants and tubers. They are, ALS-inhibitors, growth regulators, and EPSP synthase inhibitor (glyphosate).
