    I noticed the absorption methods of different brands of selective 2,4-D, mecoprop and dicamba based herbicides varies according to manufacturers, some say their products only work through the broadleafs of the weeds in question and others are introduced via the roots. Which is correct ?, I don't see how it can be effective via the leaf and not via the roots as well.

    2,4-D and MCPP are primarily absorbed through the foilage, and Dicamba is primarily a root absorbed agent.
