USDA Certified Organic Weed Killer

If you’re an organic gardener, here’s some news you may be interested in… Pharm Solutions has announced USDA Organic Certification for its newest bio-herbicide product: Pharm Solutions Organic Weed Killer, the only herbicide to carry the USDA Organic Seal.

Note – I haven’t tried this (just heard about it today) but it sounds interesting. Pharm Solutions Organic Weed Killer is a fast acting, non-selective, burn down organic weed and grass killer containing organic oils and organic surfactants. Supposedly, results can be seen in a matter of hours after application.

Pharm Solutions Founder and President Susan E. Lewis notes, “We have worked tirelessly to bring this Certified Organic Herbicide to market and are very excited to have it qualify for the USDA Organic Seal. Just in time for the upcoming backyard vegetable gardens.

Developed by a family of Organic Growers, the Pharm Solutions line of patent pending certified organic pesticides has been available since 2006. Pharm Solutions Organic Weed Killer and six other certified organic pesticides are USDA Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth, the oldest USDA accrediting body certifying organic farms, processors, marketers and handlers nationally and worldwide.

Pharm Solutions products can be found at Independent Lawn and Garden Retailers, Whole Foods, Hardware Stores, Health Food Stores and internet websites including Amazon and at the Pharm Solutions online shop.

    I’m curious about this. Since plain white vinegar kills weeds to the ground, wondering why buy this. Am sure it’s more expensive. The only advantage I can see is if it has surfacants maybe it will stay on even if it rains? Looking forward to learning more about it.

    Well, I haven’t tried it, but I posted because I know there are people who won’t ever make their own simple weed killers – although as you note that’s a very green, easy and safe option. That’s sort of my same reasoning behind posting other green products. For example green cleaners vs. homemade green cleaners or non-toxic baby wipe vs. homemade cloth and water. I get emails and comments from people who seriously don’t trust anything made at home and would rather buy a ready made product. I find that a little nuts to be honest, because of course you can make almost anything greener and more simple at home, but IF people are going to buy stuff vs. make I’d rather they buy something eco-friendly. That’s my product post excuse in a nutshell. I’d rather people use homemade but I know many won’t.

    Yes, I agree 100% Jennifer. That’s what we do as well on our blog and in our shop. We try to reach the whole spectrum of people as I know you do as well. It’s the good-better-best philosophy, though that isn’t every all that clear either!

    The response from people who don’t “trust” homemade just shows how advertising has changed–our DNA??? Scary.

    I do think it’s POSSIBLE that a company can improve on nature, i.e. I use vinegar, but it only works well when it’s really sunny and hot (about two days of the year here, LOL) and washes away in the rain. So if there really is a product that works better and is relatively green, I’m willing to give it a try.

    Thanks for all your fantastic ideas as always.
