This is a video for GreenMatch another version of the D-Limonene Active Ingredient.
I bet you feel safer now that we have bioherbicides that only cause cancer to rats.
FYI – 2,4-D or Glyphosate did not cause cancer in rats or humans.
You need to use large quantities of D-Limonene every 2 weeks for the whole season as opposed to 2 sparing applications a year of Glyphosate (Roundup)
Forget Agent Orange, its AGENT D-LIMONENE.
