Herbicides

            Herbicides are a type of pesticide used to kill plants. People use herbicides in their farms, yards and gardens to kill weeds that grow quickly and could make it more difficult for the plants in the garden or crop to grow. Herbicides are also used to kill invasive plants. Herbicides, like pesticides, can end up in the water supply and can be dangerous to humans, animals and plants that weren’t supposed to be harmed.
