I sprayed my potatoes with weed killer and it seems to have rotted the potatoes. Is this was has caused the potatoes to go bad



Please don't eat the potatoes. Lots of popular weedkillers are absorbed by the plant through the leaves and go to the roots. It wouldn't be a good idea to eat them now.

As Beattie says don't eat the potatoes but why did you spray them with weedkiller, was it an accident?
