Tomatoes and 2,4-D

OK, all you gardeners, I have an issue.

My neighbor's tomato plants have leaves that are curled and the plants don't appear to be growing as they should.

I sprayed for weeds (2,4-D) about three weeks ago when there was no wind and he asked me about that. I said, yes, I did, but I don't see how your plants were affected by my spraying when mine were not. My tomatoes are much closer to the area I was spraying and they're healthy as can be.

Now, come to find out, he planted his tomatoes in the mud about six weeks ago and we had significant rain and cold weather since then. This scenario will also produce curled leaves and slower growth.

As a reference, my plants were within about 20' of where I was spraying, his are more than 100' away. (I was very careful about what I was doing.)

Another issue is he has some plants that are really healthy within the plants that are suffering. It all makes no sense to me.

Any ideas?

I mixed up a batch of vinegar, salt, and dishwashing liquid once and was surprised by its effectiveness.

Oh yea... if you want to terminate an area of weeds you can just pour boiling water on it, that will kill it to...

The Vinegar & salt won't kill the root

Easy on the salt boss, salt will sterilize your ground. They used to pour it on Bindweed in the days before chemicals to sterilize the ground.

Good to know, but I used about a tablespoon a few years ago, so I'm not super concerned.

Something safe for weed control for Buffalo grass during the summer months? I realize that Roundup is fine, as long as the grass is dormant (after two freezes), but that's not doing justice now.

You can usually tell what is going to die from 2-4-D within a day or two. If his tomato plants are still alive three weeks later that isn't it. Mohillbilly could tell you what he should do for his mater's.

curly leaves is somewhat normal for tomato plants. I would try increasing nitrogen.

What is the most powerful herbicide available?

What is the nuclear option? I'd love to know.

Glyphosate. (Roundup) for anything growing in your yard short of a tree.

I remember using Tordon on stumps and shit when I was younger. I just didn't know if anyone was aware of a crazy-powerful option.

Gents?

Could use a recommendation from my betters, if you all have one.
