Weeds– a Non Traditional Approach

I have a lot of people ask what they can use to eliminate weeds in their fields without using chemicals.  One of the pasture seeding professionals I work with recommends this product – AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide.

The company website describes it this way

“AXXE is a  is a non-selective, weed control for grasses and broadleaf weeds. It is formulated to deliver maximum performance and provide fast-acting results on a long list of weeds and grasses, as well as most mosses and lichens.

AXXE is an herbicidal soap product comprised of a form of ammoniated pelargonic salts. These salts penetrate the cell walls of plants, disrupting the cellular functions of the targeted weeds and killing them within hours of application.

Use AXXE as a broadcast spray to control weeds prior to no-till planting or seedbed preparation. Spot sprays may be used in crops, ornamentals, pastures, and turf.”

While most of us like to see those perfect expanses of grass there are some grazing experts out there who advocate embracing the weeds or at least  better understanding the growth cycle of the weeds to be able to better control them.
