At Southland Organics, we love finding natural solutions to natural problems. Torched is our solution to weeds on your poultry farm.
Kill Weeds on Your Farm
Are you tired of seeing weeds overtaking your farm? Torched All-Natural Weed Killer is a powerful post emergence herbicide designed to quickly and effectively kill weeds in an environmentally friendly way without the use of harsh or synthetic chemicals.
Non-Selective and Highly Effective
These are the assurances Torched brings to your farm. Made from a proprietary blend of oils and soaps, Torched works by sticking to the leaf of the plant and burning—that's how it got its name! This prevents photosynthesis and halts growth which eventually kills the plant!
Safe for Your Personnel and Your Birds
Made with all natural ingredients that are generally regarded as safe, Torched is classified as a FIFRA 25-B Exempt pesticide. This designation allows you to spray around your poultry houses without the need to hire a specialist or get an applicators license. If you are an organic farm, it will probably be acceptable under your certifier. This also means that it will not harm you, your birds, or your personnel—you can even use it at home without any risk to your family or pets!
How to Use Torched
Spraying is simple and the effects are quick! Just mix Torched in your sprayer of choice and apply to any problem plants on a warm, dry day. It is important to remember that Torched requires heat to be fully effective, so we recommend spraying when it is 60 degrees or warmer to see the best results! You start seeing the effects within a couple of days!
Got weeds? Torch 'em!
From young, creeping weeds to unruly, stubborn overgrown like dog fennel and thistles, Torched offers a safe, all-natural means of elimination of plant pests on your farm!
Torched is available online and in select Georgia Poultry stores.
