    We are testing such a product now. It is an OMRI listed, EPA 25(b) Minimum Risk Pesticide selective post-emergent.

    we have lots of tools for insects but not much for weeds except sweat and iron. Iron being a good shovel.

    At this time the closest product is Fiesta Weed Killer. It is an EPA Bio-herbicide selective post emergent. The active ingredient is chelated Iron, it is not an organic product but has a very low toxicity rating.

    Like grandma & grandpa always used to say..."everything in moderation".
    If not iron, what's YOUR solution for broadleaf weeds?

    Sooner or later it will come down to a "Weed Hound" or such other product for people to control their weeds with... Physical labor instead of toting spray bottles...
