If you want to move away from highly-toxic synthetic herbicides, Avenger AG Optima is an exceptional choice. It's a non-selective weed killer that uses d-limonene (a natural citrus oil) as its active ingredient and is effective against a broad spectrum of weeds and grasses. This spray has been developed for agricultural and non-agricultural uses and is certified organic so it can be used in organic production as well as conventional growing.

For best performance, complete coverage of target weeds is necessary. This product will not translocate and will affect only those portions of plants that are coated with spray solution. Spray until thoroughly wet. Because the underside of the weed leaf may be more susceptible, side sprays are recommended. Weed size influences product efficacy as performance is improved on smaller weeds. Targeted weeds should be six inches in height or less.
Avenger AG Optima is effective over a wide range of environmental conditions, but cool weather may slow the activity of this product. For best results, spray when ambient high temperatures are expected above 50°F and lows above freezing. On cooler days, spray during the warm part of the day. Allow heavy dew to evaporate prior to application. Do not apply if windy conditions exist or rain is expected within 2 hours.

Application Instructions and Rates:
Apply at a 7-10% mixture depending on the size of the weeds. For smaller, young, actively growing weeds, apply the lower 7% mixture. For controlling larger, tough to kill weeds, use the higher 10% mixture. Use the lowest mixture whenever possible to control weeds.
Broadcast treatments are used for burndown of unwanted weeds across a field or a plot or apply to burndown winter foliage. Apply Avenger AG Optima at pre-emergence or at planting. Applications must be made before seedling emergence to avoid severe injury. Allow at least 2 days between application and transplanting. Spray until weeds are thoroughly wet.
Control or suppression of emerged weeds in row middles and between vines and trees. Apply Avenger AG Optima at a 7-10% mixture depending on the size of the weeds. Only use the 10% mixture when absolutely necessary to control difficult weeds. Apply by directing spray between the rows and using hooded sprayers to prevent spray contact with crop plants. Keep hoods adjusted to ensure adequate contact with weeds while shielding the crop from the herbicide. To minimize
drift, do not use nozzles or nozzle configurations that produce fine droplets (mist).
In cool situations or for tough to kill weeds, a more concentrated spray of d-limonene may be needed. In such situations, a 10% mixture of Avenger AG Optima (1:10 mixture) may be used up to one (1) week before harvest.
Pre-Harvest Desiccation of Vegetable Vines:
Apply Avenger AG Optima at a 7 or 10% mixture to aid in the desiccation of vegetable vines prior to harvest operations. A second application may be necessary to obtain sufficient desiccation.
