Herbicide refers to a product that is used to control weeds. Herbicides can be chemicals specifically formulated to control weeds or they can be other products typically used for other applications (salt, vinegar). It is important for landscape managers, gardeners, and those who work with gardeners and homeowners to be aware of the safety and toxicological properties of all of these materials. This information, which is the focus of this publication, will assist in decision making in residential areas and in assisting others in managing home lawns and other areas.
