Abstract

Interest in eco-friendly, or green herbicides, has grown recently. Some homeowners are looking for alternative products they feel are safer for the environment. Eco-friendly herbicides commonly use organic oils or minerals that dissipate faster than traditional herbicides, which decreases the restriction period of the herbicide. These organic herbicides are contact herbicides and often require multiple applications for effective weed control. The objective of this study was to determine what application rates and frequency of applications allowed for similar weed control compared with a conventional herbicide.
