Organic weed control

6 posts in this topic

I know the best methods of organic weed control are all mechanical, but is there an organic spray that can get rid of stinging nettle? It is spreading pretty rapidly in our farm yard, but I cannot use any of the traditional chemical methods to control it.

There is a product called Weed Pharm, it comes in a ready to use bottle. Safer Products I believe still makes a similar product that comes in a concentrate. Both of the products are non-selective herbicides so whatever they touch they will kill.

Use a flame weeder. Concentrated acetic acid is also a good method for organic weed suppression.

Do you know where the concentrated acetic acid is available? We used some a few years back with mixed results. Killed the grasses, but not the broadleaves - just stunted those.

We use flaming on a large scale, but not around the yard. I will look into what is available around here.

JR Johnson Supply in Minneapolis is where I get it. Buckwheat Growers Association or Albert Lea Seedhouse might have it also.

I've gotten rid of it around some of my plots with periodic mowing if that is an option.

The areas with most of the stinging nettle are on the edges of our groves, where mowing is next to impossible.

We do quite a bit of business with Albert Lea Seedhouse, so I will check with them to see if they have the acetic acid.

    •   Lol been making them for years.  Funny you were just able to "get it".  
    •   Yep only you and the club "get it".  
    • He was looking better but then last night happened and it reminded you the last couple seasons have been just bad after a promising start a few years back. Heck I might even swap him for one of the Jets goalies, they all have been terrible but with a competent D they might work in a pinch.
    • D2E learned how to make his own memes, this should be entertaining.
    •   (D2E, returning to check his deposit)
    •   Yes, please. I have no faith in Kuemper even in spot duty. He really does have the talent, but he's too much of a head case. The Francisco Liriano of hockey? Lol. Last night was a dumpster fire (although that fourth goal wasn't his fault, it still rattled him--we can't have that mentality on any level, even if he sees the ice very infrequently).
    • Sounds like we have pretty serious interest in Latavius Murray from Oakland. I'd be all for that. Good runner, decent receiving back, and good pass blocking back. AKA, a complete RB and a 3-down guy. At 27, he's not a super long term solution, but for 2-3 years I'd take swing at him. This draft is solid at RB, so we can draft and develop while Murray and McKinnon hold down the fort.   As for AP, I have so many good memories, and he might even be poised for one of those bounce-back type years where he rips of 1300 and 12 TDs, but I just have to believe that should be done somewhere else. He flat out doesn't fit this offensive style. We need a more well rounded back (Murray or someone like him). Hang up your spurs in Texas, AP. Thanks for the good times.

    • A lot of people don't get the political extremist either, probably more of us leaning away from the parties than people doubling down on them, not to mention the 70 some million that just watch form the sidelines. Just because people actually voted for idiots like Trump & Clinton doesn't mean they were happy to do it. One could even say they were forced into it which all of us really were because of the systems in place. But hey you keep on spinning it any way you'd like.
