Host: flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type)
Description: Preplant incorporated herbicides may cause injury when improperly applied or not uniformly incorporated. Lateral roots may appear to be pruned, stubby, or stunted. Main roots may have areas without lateral roots. Irregular growth with stunting of the affected plants is above ground evidence of this injury. The pattern of occurrence in the field may relate to application or incorporation methods which resulted in accumulation of herbicide in "hot spots." Soil residues from excessive and/or multiple uses of dinitroanaline pesticides on sandy, low organic matter soils may retard early season growth of the next crops.
