I really would like some recommendation on a really good weed killer. I even have been counseled to use ""Monsanto agreeableness Glyphosate"" but haven't any information about this product and looks not wideout there.

The weeds area unit during an over big space of the garden and perpetually return with a vengeance. we've cut them down and have bought weed material. However, as a precaution are thinking a weed killer.

Any recommendations would be nice, please. Am very tired of it returning all the time because it delays us really landscaping and making a pretty garden to relish.

Info on Monsanto's Glyphosate...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sUNxX0OxP8

and under

State of the Science of Gmo Foods - Health and Wellness section.


Glyphosate will stay in your soil for up to 20 years. It does not break down in the 3 years Monsanto states. You should assume anything Monsanto states on their packaging is false.

There are alternatives. Search "natural weed killer."

You could ask put the question to Moms Across America on Facebook.

Toxic Truth: New Evidence for Banning Monsanto's Roundup Weedkiller

As reported this week in the Guardian, new tests show that when Roundup’s key active ingredient, glyphosate, is combined with other chemicals to create the final product, the herbicide is more toxic to human cells than glyphosate alone.



“We don’t know what the formulation is,” Devito told the Guardian.” That is confidential business information.” According to the Guardian, for testing purposes, scientists sourced some samples from store shelves, picking up products the EPA told them were the top sellers, he said.



Adjuvants in pesticides are generally declared as inerts, and for this reason they are not tested in long-term regulatory experiments. It is thus very surprising that they amplify up to 1000 times the toxicity of their AP [active ingredient] in 100% of the cases where they are indicated to be present by the manufacturer.”

Try to keep the soil cultivated so that it is easy to pull the weeds.

A statement like this is a real head scratchier. Adjuvants, which are usually soaps and/or oils, are used to make the active ingredient more effective. They do not increase the toxicity.

Example we add adjuvant to a herbicides to break down wax on leaves, which allows the active ingredient to get into the plant more easily.

The benefit is that we can use less of the pesticide.
