Our industry has learned that certain chemical broadleaf weed killers can survive the composting process and continue to negatively affect plants grown in such compost. We have named these chemicals, Persistent Herbicides, because the active chemical ingredients can persist on treated vegetation for years even after composting
persistent Herbicide factsheets available
We are pleased to provide threse factsheets to help composters and others understand what persistent herbicides are, how to know if your compost has any and what to do about it.
We thank Craig Coker and Michael Whitt for authoring these factsheets and Filtrexx International for their generous support.
