A.D.I.O.S.: The Answer to Organic Weed Control?

A.D.I.O.S. Product Banner

We would like to introduce you to a new organic weed control product that was approved for use in the United States and is now available for sale. A.D.I.O.S. (Advanced Development in Organic Solutions) developed by Herbanatur  is approved for organic use by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), is EPA Exempt and is available now through Great Garden Supply! Environmentally-friendly weed control has been a huge problem facing lawn care companies and homeowners. Before the introduction of A.D.I.O.S., no other organic product previously on the market eradicated weeds as well and as cost effectively as A.D.I.O.S. does, and the folks at Herbanatur have six years of research to back up their promise.

Patented A.D.I.O.S. is an eco-friendly post-emergent foliar herbicide that is non-toxic and odorless, meets USDA organic standards, and is exempt from EPA registration under FIFRA 25(b) as a Minimum Risk Pesticide. Those are a lot of big words that basically mean that this product is perfect for weed control where children and pets play and is also effective in controlling ragweed and poison ivy. A.D.I.O.S. can be safely applied on turf and lawns and around ornamental plants, small trees, and even vegetable gardens.

Application of A.D.I.O.S. does need some special considerations. To be effective, complete foliage coverage is essential and leaves and stems of the weeds you want to kill should be sprayed to the point of run-off. Some weeds will require a follow-up application and the product should not be used on drought-stressed turf or when temperatures exceed 80 degrees. Although it should not be applied to newly established turf, you can seed the following day after usage. That’s a great aspect…no wait time between application and reseeding. Noticeable signs of control will be seen shortly after the application of A.D.I.O.S.

During the fall of 2011, Herbanatur joined forces with Mass DOT (Department of Transportation) to conduct trials using A.D.I.O.S.  to control a variety of species, including ragweed, mugwort, poison ivy, bittersweet, and Japanese knotweed. Both foliar application and soil injection proved that the use of A.D.I.O.S. kills weeds within days. We decided to conduct our own trials right here in Peabody, Massachusetts to see for ourselves just how effective A.D.I.O.S. is on weeds. I’m happy to report that our results were just as successful as the results garnered from the collaboration between Herbanatur and Mass DOT. See for yourself:

    Since the active ingredient in ADIOS is Sodium Chloride, how is it different from table salt?

      Hi Will; this is actually a very common question. Table salt is a mixture of ingredients (Sodium chloride, Potassium iodide, Glucose, Calcium Silicate, Sodium Aluminosilicate, Calcium Silicate) that doesn’t work as an herbicide. ADIOS uses pure sodium chloride, manufactured specifically for herbicide use. This pure form along with other inert ingredients, gives ADIOS it’s proprietary, patented product that you see now.
