General Instructions:

AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide is a contact non-selective herbicide for spray application only to undesirable plant growth. Do not allow spray to contact any green plant parts of desirable plants. AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide provides control and burndown suppression of annual and perennial broadleaf and grass weeds. Spore producing plants such as mosses and liverworts are also controlled. The amount of burndown and the duration of weed suppression may be reduced when weed growth conditions are unfavorable or when plants are mature.

AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide is non-volatile and water soluble for foliar application in tractor powered field-type sprayers or manual pump sprayers. Complete and uniform coverage of weeds by the spray solution is required for the best weed control. Plant foliage will change from a green color to brown/black necrotic tissue within one to two hours after spray application of AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide diluted with water. AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide effect on plant tissue may be more rapid in warm weather than in cold conditions. However, weed control is normally unaffected by temperature.

AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide is a soap product which penetrates the cell walls of plants to disrupt the cellular organization of physiological functions which are compartmentalized by membranes within the cell walls. Plant growth ceases when cellular contents are mixed which causes brown necrotic plant tissue.

AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide does not migrate through the soil and is not translocated in plants. To ensure satisfactory control, plant leaves must be thoroughly and uniformly covered with the spray solution. AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide does not provide any residual weed control in soil to affect germinating weed seeds.

Mixing and Application Instructions:

For use, AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide is diluted with water to the specified concentration for effective control of the undesirable vegetation. Apply using standard methods of liquid herbicide application. Dilution must be in accordance with label instructions. Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system. A 12% v/v dilution is recommended for most weed control situations and based on the results, applicators may increase or decrease spray concentrations as discussed in the following text and tables to obtain better control or to reduce herbicide use.

The degree of dilution for application is based on the concentration of active ingredient needed for the size of vegetation to be suppressed or the rate of herbicidal effect desired. The larger the vegetation, the higher the concentration (lower dilution) required for rapid action. See required concentration for variously sized weeds and grasses in Dosage and Application Rates Section. Hard to suppress weeds (deep-rooted perennials and some grasses) may require one or more later applications for complete control.

Spray equipment options include hand-held, boom sprayers, pressure sprayers and hose-end sprayers. Spray nozzles that produce a uniform spray will give maximum coverage of the leaves, and thus highest activity. AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide is completely soluble in water and requires only nominal mixing. Once mixed, no additional mixing or agitation is required.

Application Precautions:

  • Do not apply to weeds when wet from dew, rain or irrigation.
  • Do not irrigate within 2 hours after application.
  • Do not apply if rainfall is expected within 2 hours.

    Worked better than I expected

    By David on 09/27/2017

    I ordered this to use at a property where the client was concerned about adverse reactions sometimes attributed to Glyphosate products. After a little research and an agreement to pay more for my service, I ended up shooting this stuff on a warm, dry day. It smells like a mixture of soap and urine and suds up occasionally, but it effectively burned down most of the applied weeds. Some weeds did recover, so a second application was required, but I sometimes have that happen with Glyphaosate products. It is expensive to shoot due to the enormous application rate. All in all, if you have a client that is scared of certain chemistries, this is a viable option.

    Doesn't Work

    By Susan on 08/12/2022

    We have been looking for alternatives to Roundup and toxic pesticides for some time. We decided to try Axxe. Other than minor wilting, Axxe did not kill anything. Extremely disappointed. Spent $2600 and we will still need to find something else.

Will AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide kill tomato plants if it just contacts a few leaves

I'm spraying between plastic mulch rows and roundup 24d etc. if barely touching the tomato plants kills them routinely. will this just desiccate a few leaves or is it systemic

The AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide is a non-selective herbicide but it does say that it can be applied around food crops following the instructions on the product label so it should be safe around tomatos.

Does AXXE kill the roots of the weed? Also can you mix it with Roundup?

Just sprayed 2 days ago in a large area and more weeds are coming


AXXE also does not mention tank mixing at all on the label.  Ammonium Nonanoate works by dissolving plant cell walls in leaves in stems. This causes plants to lose water, drying them out and killing above ground growth and the roots die after.  So it will only kill what is sprayed and does not prevent any new weeds from growing, there is no residual after application.
Usually people do not tank mix a natural option AXXE with a chemical product like Roundup.  AXXE leaves no soil residual which is what most people using it for want.  Roundup can stay in the soil for up to 2 weeks

What can I use other than Roundup to spray weeds around my pecan trees?

For broadleaf weeds around your pecan trees, you are really limited to spot treating using a non-selective herbicide such as the RoundUp. You may also consider a natural product such as Axxe Herbicide for use around edibles.
