GreenMatchTMEX offers organic growers an EFFECTIVE alternative to costly hand weeding, flaming, mowing and cultivation in their battle to keep crops free of weeds. GreenMatchTMEX is a new, effective and economical burndown herbicide that is fast-acting, easy to apply and active on a broad spectrum of weeds.
GreenMatchTMEX is non-selective, and controls most annual and perennial weeds, both grasses and broadleaves. It is a fast-acting, post-emergence herbicide for use on weeds that already exist. The active ingredient in GreenMatchTMEX is Lemongrass Oil, a powerful, herbicidal, essential oil that strips away the waxy cuticle from weed leaves, causing fast wilting (necrosis), dehydration and death. Lemongrass oil provides a longer lasting burndown than other essential oils, and is further strengthened by other natural oils and surfactants in the GreenMatchTMEX formula.
CROP USE GreenMatchTMEX may be used on organic cropland to provide excellent burndown control of most grasses and broadleaf weeds. Its concentrated emulsion formula is easily mixed and sprayed on targeted weeds. Like all non-selective, burndown materials, care must be taken to avoid contact with crops or other desirable vegetation, as all green tissue may be damaged. Also, as with other burndown products, coverage is very important. There is no re-entry interval required after spraying GreenMatchTMEX. Non Crop Use GreenMatchTMEX also offers an excellent alternative to chemical herbicides for non-crop uses. It can be applied in environmentally sensitive areas, for landscaping, at schools, parks, recreation facilities or any area with proximity to people or pets. Use it on cracks, edges, around fence posts, tree wells, etc. to kill most weeds. Do not spray on lawns as it is non-selective and will kill grass.
GreenMatch EX is non-toxic and highly biodegradable. It contains only food grade ingredients that have low impact on the environment, non target organisms and workers.
