Option Herbicide Drift

Option is a corn herbicide that may cause damage to tobacco planted near corn.  Symptoms range from mild 
yellow spotting (1st picture) to more severe damage on plants with a more direct drift exposure (pictures 2 & 3).  
Note that in pictures 1 & 2 bud leaves are normal and tobacco is expected to recover from all but the most severe
damage.  Symptoms are very similar to Accent, Beacon and Exceed damage all of which are chemically similar to Option.
