DAMAGED PLANTS

DAMAGED PLANTS — Mike Hayes shows plants in his butterfly garden at Blue Bank Resort at Reelfoot Lake that have been possibly damaged by the herbicide chemical dicamba. Dicamba damage can appear on the leaves of many plants and soybean crops as a curling on the edges of the plants’ leaves. It can also appear as stunted plant growth, lower yields on fruit-bearing plants and even the death of areas of plants and trees. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture encourages anyone who suspects possible dicamba damage to plant life on their property to report it by calling the TDA office at (615) 837-5103.
