There is a product called Interceptor, but it only works on small,young annual weeds, and is best on broad, flatleaf weeds.It is not systemic. Available from Green Harvest: inquiries@greenharvest.com.au.

If you think about it, anything which kills green, growing plants (weeds)will kill other growing things.

Julie,
If you apply Sulfate of Ammonia to broadleaf weeds and leave it to sit on them they will burn off and die and other plants nearby, such as lawn or fruit trees will simply become greener.
Ricardo,
Are you asking how to remove the insecticide called 'RAID' from weeds or are you asking how to get rid of weeds in general?

Hi everyone.

i wanted to ask if anyone knew of any kind of weed killer, natural or synthetic that is as effective as glyphosate however is entirely (or almost entirely) environmentally friendly.

In my personal opinion the huge advantage and convenience you get from spraying weeds far outweights any small environmental implications it may have on your garden bed, no to mention the weeds are probably stressing your plants out more so than a little glyphosate in the soil. however if there is a safer or more environmentally friendly alternative out there that i dont know of then why not use that!

While we are on the topic does anyone know of any resources clearly explaining the health and environmental implications of glyphosate. Ive researched it myself but i always seem to find slightly conflicting arguments or its use.

Thanks for your help

Steven

No sorry, the pine oil is one product(interceptor?) I was told by a Citrus grower that it inhibits weed germination, similar to a pine needle mulch leaching into the soil. The other is concentrated acetic acid(vinegar) as a spray. Not sure of the dilution rates etc.

I do prefer using the Specracide HG-96017 or the Preen Garden Weed Preventer as they both are tree friendly and does not affect anything else like my bee farms
