2. What are the uses for 2,4,5-TP?

Until Silvex was banned in 1985, the greatest use of 2,4,5-TP was as a postemergence herbicide for control of woody plants and broadleaf herbaceous weeds in rice and bluegrass turf, in sugarcane, in rangeland improvement programs, and on lawns. Aquatic uses included control of weeds in ditches and riverbanks, on floodways, along canals, reservoirs, streams, and along southern waterways.
