Herbicide-damaged cotton plant. This cotton plant (Gossypium sp.) has been accidentally exposed to the herbicide Roundup, used to kill any weeds growing near the crop of cotton plants. It is not a 'Roundup Ready' (resistant) variety of cotton, so its growth has been stunted by the herbicide and it is only half the height that it should be. Photographed in Arkansas, USA.
Model release not required. Property release not required.
