Residues of herbicide tanks may cause damage to sensitive crops. The objective of this study is to evaluate the potential effects of subdoses of the herbicide 2,4-D choline salt on the vegetative and reproductive stages of soybean. The experiment was randomized blocks with a subdivided plot design and four replications. The application times were at V3 and R2 in the main plot. The herbicide 2,4-D choline salt was applied at the subdoses 0, 2.28, 4.56, 9.12, 18.24, 27.36 and 45.60 g a.e. ha-1 in the subplots. Phytotoxicity was evaluated at 3, 7 and 14 days after application (DAT) of treatments, soybean height at 14 and 28 DAT and at ripening, yield components at ripening, and grain yield. The phytotoxicity evaluation of 2,4-D choline salt evidenced that symptoms were only observed up to 14 days after application (DAT) of treatments. The 2,4-D did not affect any of the variables tested. Grain yield was not influenced by application times or subdoses.
