Chemical Action and Usages: The following products are post emergence herbicides that are composed of natural ingredients or non synthetic components. Some are OMRI® (Organic Material Review Institute) certified as indicated behind the product name. Some may be available locally while others may need to be ordered from companies that specialize in natural products for home, lawn and garden. The ingredients are listed for each separate product. This listing does not infer the effectiveness or indorse the product but is merely presented to give a listing of some of the formulations available to those who prefer a natural or non synthetic product.

These products are contact herbicides, therefore only plants directly contacted by the spray will be killed. Control is best on young, maturing, annual weeds and grasses. Several applications may be necessary to control perennial weeds and/or weeds and grasses that are more mature.
