Abstract:

The effect of cacodylic acid on the translocation of 2,4- dichlorophenoxyacetic acids 2,4-D was studied by droplet applications to bean leaves. Responses were studied by utilizing plant weights and by autoradiography. Cacodylic acid was antagonistic to 2,4-D toxicity when applied as a mixture. The antagonism was reduced when the two compounds were applied as separate droplets. The antagonism of cacodylic acid to 2,4-D toxicity was due to both a reduction in absorption and translocation of the systemic herbicide.
