Botanical Weed and Grass Herbicide. This product is a contact, non-selective, broad spectrum herbicide. Multiple trials have demonstrated effectiveness against a wide range of weeds. Controls most annual and perennial weeds, both grasses and broadleaf. Complete coverage is required. Use of an organic surfactant is recommended, but not required. Nu Film Performed best in field trials. The active ingredient is d-limonene, a citrus oil extract that strips away the waxy cuticle from leaves, causing fast wilting (necrosis), dehydration and death. Other ingredients include castor oil and emulsifiers. For best results, treat weeds 6 inches or smaller. Larger plants, grasses and perennials may need repeat applications. Most economical if banded or used for spot treatment.

I sprayed this on my pathways and I was surprised at how well it worked! The qt goes in my 2 gallon sprayer and did a very large area. Everything it touched, died! And it hasn't come back! I've used other organic herbicides, but I like this one the best so far.Review by Sarah (on 4/28/13)
