Influence of tank mixtures of commercially available, recommended herbicides on the "oil content" (actually, the total fatty acid content) and the fatty acid composition for the subsequent corn (Zea mays L.) crop was measured by gas-liquid chromatography. Changes in total fatty acids and in fatty acid composition were caused by atrazine + cyanazine, atrazine + alachlor, atrazine + prometryne, atrazine + linuron, and alachlor + cyanazine. Dcpa + 2,4-D and alachlor + linuron did not cause any changes in the fatty acid composition.
