Herbicides are designed to be applied by several methods, the most common of which is foliar sprays. Foliage of woody vegetation, such as brush and trees, may not be easily treated with foliar sprays because of the limitations of most farm sprayers. Sprays or granular formulation applications to the soil can be effective, but these pose an increased potential for damage to nontarget plants from lateral herbicide movement or granular runoff.
