The Impact of Dicamba Herbicide on Potato Yield, Quality, and Seed Viability

The presentation explains the effects dicamba has on potato leaves, tubers, and seed when planted back. Dicamba is a translocating herbicide that will express injury in the growing points of plants. When a low dose of unintended herbicide comes in contact with a sensitive crop, such as potato, the results can be devastating for the potato plant and tubers. New leaves become twisted, cupped and malformed, while tuber number can be reduced and malformed.
