Since the introduction of 2,4 - dichlorophenoxyacetic acid as an herbicide, considerable study has been given to the physiological action of this compound on various plants. Changes in metabolic rate have been reported by many workers (1,2,3). These changes have been measured by the respiration of tissue slices, by changes in the carbohydrate and nitrogen constituents of the plant, and by changes in the water content.
