When Herbicides End Up, “Off Target”.

So how do herbicides end up “off target”? Four possibilities come to mind.

  • Drift
  • Volatilization
  • Employee error
  • Malice

When you have a herbicide claim you have to determine What, How, Who, When and What now.

What happened. Is it really herbicides causing the damages?

How did they get there? Drift, Volatilization, Employee error, Malice?

Who did it? Was it your insured or client? Could it have been someone else?

When did it happen? What were the weather conditions etc?

What now? Are their damages? Will the plants recover? Is the damage permanent or temporary? What are the costs of recovery?

To quiz yourself review the photos and answer this question- Are the symptoms in the photos the result of herbicides and if so what are the damages?
