Herbicidal impact on plants post SAP treatments. a Control plants are imaged 7 days after the water treatment. b For 0.58 mM SAP application induced phytotoxicity on plants defined by leaf and petiole curling, stunted stem growth and chlorosis. c With further increase in the dosage of SAP to 1.17 mM, the effects of phytotoxicity elevated to the tissue necrosis. For a gradual increase in the dosage from d 2.34 mM through e 5.85 mM to f 11.70 mM the herbicidal impact also respectively intensified leading plant to death. When compared to water treated control plants (g), PO treated plants with 0.58 mM (h), 1.17 mM (i) and 2.34 mM (j) doses, developed epinasty. On the contrary, PO treated plants 5.85 mM (k) and 11.70 mM (l) exhibited chlorosis along with epinasty. Except for the water treated control plants (m), all the picloram treatments elicited an intense leaf curling, chlorosis and tissue decay in a dose-dependent manner (nr). Scale bar equal to 1 cm
