Alternative Herbicide Trials 2007

Abstract: Two alternative herbicides, vinegar based AllDown and clove oil based BurnOut II, were compared to hand weeding under home garden conditions. Trials were run in Geneva and Rochester, with 3 replicates in each test. While both result in rapid burning of foliage, neither product was consistently or dramatically better than hand weeding in controlling perennial weeds. BurnOut II was more effective than AllDown in all trials.
