  1. Picloram

    Picloram is a systemic herbicide used for general woody plant control, sold under the trade names Tordon and Grazon. It also controls a wide range of broad-leaved weeds, but most grasses are resistant. A chlorinated derivative of picolinic acid, picloram is in the pyridine family of herbicides. Picloram can be sprayed on foliage, injected into plants, applied to cut surfaces, or placed at the base of the plant where it will leach to the roots. Once absorbed by the foliage, stem, or roots, picloram is transported throughout the plant. During the Vietnam War, a mixture of picloram and 2,4-D, known as Agent White, was sprayed on plants that survived treatment with Agent Orange. Super-Orange was a mixture of Agent Orange and picloram. Agent White and Super-Orange were proprietary products of the Dow Chemical Company.
