Herbicide application. Field of young cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) plants being sprayed with herbicide. The hooded sprayer ensures that the herbicide is targeted down to the ground instead of being blown away by the wind. Herbicides are applied to crops to prevent the growth of weeds, which may compete for light and nutrients and therefore reduce crop yield. Photographed in Arkansas, USA.
