Assuming that you folks don't know much about herbicides 2,4-d is a synthetic auxin (plant hormone responsible for internode lengthening in broadleaved plants) that was developed by the Brits in WWII with the intent of making broadleaved plants grow faster and yield more, it turned out it killed them so they started using it as an herbicide to kill the broad leaved plants growing in cereal grain fields. It's the active ingredient in a lot of lawn care "gick" because it will kill all the clover and dandelions out of the neatly manicures 3/4th inch tall suburban lawns with out affecting the grass at all.
Figured you guys would want to know, figured the tone of this post would meet with Paul's approval.
