Herbicides are chemicals used to manipulate or control undesirable vegetation.  They are commonly used in row-crop farming, where they are applied to maximize crop productivity by minimizing other vegetation.  Herbicides are applied to water bodies to control aquatic weeds.  In urban areas, herbicides are applied to lawns, parks, golf courses.

ESG Laboratories applies methods SW846 8151A (modified)for analysis of Herbicides.  All samples are collected, handled, prepared and analyzed in accordance with USEPA 40 CFR Part 136 as amended.
