This crap can only have military applications.
I think I had a close encounter of the worst kind with this abomination.
DOT "helping" the power compant sprayed power line right of way and
highway ditch & embankment with tractor mounted spray rig. Didn't bother
to stop for my locked steel driveway gate. Got home later, unlocked
gate, came in contact with dried-on poison, was majorly groty f***ed-up
for several months. I called them up and made them come back with
barrels of soapy water and wash mi gate, chain and locks. Idiots.
And Toby says they spray wild marshland with it to get rid of
blackberry? May all thos ethat do that wind up homeless and destitute
and have to depend on the good will of samaritans to provide them with
community garden space to regain their health and self respect.
