  1. No. Agent Orange was a weapon used to defoliate jungles in the Vietnam War. One of its constituents is 2-4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxytetraacetic acid), a synthetic auxin. Auxins are plant growth regulators. The synthetic auxin is a useful herbicide. Your distortion that use of 2,4-D in agriculture is the same as using “Agent Orange” is an outright lie. The graphic above reveals the hyperbole. I hope that others read information on the subject to learn the facts about this plant growth regulator and its applications in farming.
