Relative volatility of different 2,4-D herbicide formulations

Herbicide formulations can dramatically influence herbicide performance, from efficacy to compatibility to shelf life. For some postemergence herbicides, the active ingredient can take multiple forms. Examples of herbicides that have multiple forms include glyphosate, 2,4-D, and dicamba. This article will focus on the relative volatility of three forms of 2,4-D.
