Xylene is a chemical carrier that is present in some emulsifiable concentrate pesticides. When high rates of pesticides containing this chemical are applied under high pressure to young tobacco leaves, injury similar to a mild case of 2,4-D injury may be sustained. Leaves affected by xylene are slightly narrower than normal and may have a glossy appearance. Though similar to 2,4-D injury leaves affected by xylene are not as stiff.
