McGill University http://www.mcgill.ca/macdonald/
did the research in developing this all natural selective post-emergent herbicide. McGill also owns the patent.
It was approved in the US last year and is EPA Exempt. We sent samples for field tests to several of our landscapers & LCOs and they were pleased with the results.
ADIOS is DSMA, an organo aresenate compound. I don't see how a known carcinogen will be approved when a relatively safe chemical such as glyphosate is banned. Also, it is banned in the U.S.
But, stranger things have happened...
