This IREC Farmers newsletter presents information on the use of MCPA in rice observations and several trials have seen several draw backs of using MCPA and these include the need to drop water level as a result of the need the herbicide needs contact with the plant, spray drift to other broadleaf crops is an issues. The 1979 season also saw observations and several trials see that at required dose and timing produce similar results as snail damage. Further studies were to be undertaken in 1980.
