Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type)
Description: Maleic hydrazide , applied after topping to prevent sucker growth, acts by inhibiting cell division. If it is applied to immature plants, the younger leaves become narrow and pale green, and stalk elongation is slowed or halted. Application of excessive rates may cause abnormal coloring and thickening of upper leaves as well as drooping of the tip leaves. The use of excessive pressure and/or improper nozzles may result in leaf scorch or burn, especially on hot days. Suckers existing on the plant at the time of application develop small, narrow leaves and are limited in growth. Application rate determines the response of the plant.
