On May 26 my neighbor sprayed his peanuts with 2,4-DB that drifted to my property in a high wind. A few pots of peppers that were close to the property line ain't looking so great and I'm thinking it's herbicide damage. I hauled all of my plants to the pumphouse and sprayed them down with a mist but I think maybe it didn't help in all cases.
Three pots, Trinidad Scorpion, Carolina Reaper and a 7 Pot Douglah are not looking all that fine. The new growth is a nightmare. The pictures are of a normal leaf and new growth with stem elongation from the scorpion. All new growth on these plants is like this. Small, shriveled and very distorted. Does this look like herbicide or could it possibly be something else?
Out of around 30 pots, three are showing heavier damage like this, a couple are showing minor damage and the rest are fine. I've been waiting for a nice day to take pictures of the plants themselves but we have no nice days any more.Always dark, windy and raining. so I just cut off a sample and brought it in to photograph.
Any advice on these plants? Cut them back and hope for the best? Give them a shot of any antidote?
