A herbicide (commonly known as a herbicide) is a type of pesticide used to kill plants. Some are selective - only affect certain plants. Synthetic herbicides tend to limitationate plant hormones that interfere with the growth of the plant. There are also herbicides, natural, naturally produced by plants to keep other plants are too close to them. Organic Herbicides, there are also those that are less harmful to the environment and the animals - which include Vinegar, Steam, Water with Salt and Spices. Many herbicides used can have a very detrimental effect on the environment and the animals that eat plants that have had pesticides used on them. Some have even been found to be Carcinogens and Toxins. When a population of plants has withstood a herbicide for a long time, can become resistant to that herbicide.
