Vinegar for weeds

Thu, 04 Apr 2013 23:48:03 PDT
Hello all,
 This vinegar suggeston reminds me of  the method we used in the sixties for 
controlling on a field scale, weeds in onion crops with a diluted mixture of 
sulphuric acid ( H2SO4). Very efficient on small weeds,  but only a setback 
effect on older weeds. The problem was  that  acid resistant equipment was 
necessary and handling the acid was a very delicate affair.  In a small 
scale highly diluted  swimming pool acid will have the same  results.

"weeds" are best dealt with near the end of the growing season when they 
have used up all their resources.
