FYI: The dish-washing liquid cuts through the weed's protective coating of oil on the leaves, thus allowing the salty vinegar to be absorbed better. Below are before and after photos.
Atrazine is dangerous and is an unacceptable risk to our health and our environment. After being banned in the European Union back in 2004, the United States is just starting to follow with banning the product in the spring of 2014. Does the fear of less business revenue have such a strong grip on America that we have to wait ten years longer to do what the rest of the world has already implemented? This chemical has the largest use, 76 million pounds dumped on our soil each year. Scientific studies proved atrazine is an endocrine disruptor. The New York Times ran a story in August 2009 about the potential for birth defects or low birth weights with an atrazine intake well below federal standards. The other two pesticides used in weed killers are metalaxyl and imidacloprid. Neither have been addressed as of yet. Only God knows how much time will be needed to ban them.
