Tomato plant injury from oxyfluorfen herbicide

Zone Kenya | conrad added on November 1, 2015 | Answered

I am from Kenya. I planted some tomatoes and onions five weeks back. I used a selective herbicide called galigan, which contains oxyfluorfen, after weeds emerged. I mixed the herbicide and a fungicide on the onions and some drifted to the tomatoes causing burns on their leaves. What can I do? Will they survive? Conrad.

Little can be done when a herbicide is accidently sprayed onto plants.

You try flushing the soil with water.

You will just have to wait to see what the damage is and if the plant survives.
