Avenger Weed Killer Concentrate is a great solution for those looking for environmentally safe herbicides. This product is a non-selective herbicide, made from the rind of oranges to control most annual grasses, weeds and broadleaves. It contains the active ingredient, D-limonene (citrus oil), which naturally takes away the waxy plant cuticle so the plant ends up being dehydrated and then dies. Avenger is fast-acting with visible results and does not stain pavement, concrete or brick. This product is OMRI listed and great for organic gardening.

We had 1000 square feet of weeds and I was looking for an environmentally friendly product. At nurseries I was advised that nothing worked except real poisons and should forget about the harm they cause. On line I discovered Avenger and gave it a try. A few hours after spraying, most of the weeds turned totally brown but there were some weeds and parts of weeds that were green because Avenger kills only where it touches and I'd missed some spots. Respraying just the green was quick because the green was easy to see. After the second spraying, the weeds were wiped out.
I used this product to treat perennial weeds in my stone driveway. Previously I used a backpack flame weeder to do the same job. We we are organic farmers so chemicals are not an option. Avenger did a better job than flaming, keeping perennial grasses and weeds down for about one month after treatment. I reapplied again after about a month or two and it effectively knocked everything down again. I used it at the highest recommended concentration. I think it would work at a slightly lower rate as well, as it burned weeds down really quickly. I would recommend it and will definitely use it again.
I bought this product instead of Roundup because I have animals. I accidentally got a bit on my skin and it burned pretty bad. It smelled good, and it worked well on most weeds and grass when thoroughly saturated. I have 5 acres and it would cost me a fortune to use this on a regular basis. My suggestion is to try it to see if it works for you, especially if you have a smaller property. I have a little left after the area I sprayed and will be trying it out again.
Is Avenger Weed Killer Concentrate safe to use around vegetable gardens and fruit bearing trees?
The Avenger Weed Killer Concentrate is safe for use around edible vegetation and fruit trees as it does persist in the soil and is approved for organic gardening. Be sure to not spray any of the plants you do not want to kill as it is non-selective and will kill anything it is applied to.
How much Avenger Weed Killer would i need for 10 acres?
I have 5 acres myself and our catholic church has 5 acres. How many bottles would I need to spray 10 acres and what size?
How you need is going to be entirely dependent on whether you are spot spraying or trying to treat the entire surface area of the 10 acres. This is a non-selective product, so its the organic/natural version of RoundUp. It will kill any and all plants it comes into contact with so if you are trying to use an organic product to kill the entire surface of plant life of the 10 acres this would technically work but may need a few application depending on how hearty the weeds are. According to the product label you would use 1 1/2 gallons of Avenger to every 10 gallons of water you mix up. Depending on the rate at which you spray 10 gallons could cover a very wide range of area. You will probably need at least 3 gallons of Avenger per acre on a rough spray estimate if you are treating all the square footage and not just spot spraying.
What if any herbicide is safe to use in my garden?
I need to kill grass and weeds without killing peas, butter beans, corn, okra,and tomatoes. (All very small plants at this point)
Please look into Avenger Herbicide. Avenger Weed Killer Concentrate is a great solution for those looking for environmentally safe herbicides. It is a non-selective and post emergence herbicide, that is made from oranges and lemons to kill grasses, weeds, and broadleaves.

While the product label does not specifically mention Congongrass, this is a natural version of Round UP. It is a non-selective herbicide which means it will kill ALL vegetation it touches including grasses, weeds, flowers and similar plants.
