Have been trying vineger as an herbacide for the last two weeks.
Originally I was told you could use 1 part vineger to 2 parts water. This
turned out to be not so potent. 1 to 1 worked better. I am mainly using it
on newly germinated weeds. Seems to be much more effective on broad leaves.
Some grasses even freshly germinated werent harmed. I will put some dish
soap in the next batch for better coverage of the leaf surface. I think part
of the problem with the grasses is the hairs on the leaf surface dont allow
the spray to get in and do its work.
