An alternative approach

OMRI-listed weed and grass control solution provides choice and results.

When it comes to gardening, people have a variety of interests. Some might prefer more conventional products, while others might gravitate to organics. Some might desire immediate results, while others have their sights set on longer-term success.

The bottom line is there are different types of gardeners. Their needs may be varied, but in the end they all want the same thing: Lawn and garden solutions that solve for their specific needs and deliver the results they want.

This holds true for many facets of gardening, including nonselective weed and grass killers. To provide gardeners with choice, our breakthrough research and development has led to the creation of Ortho® GroundClear®, a nonselective weed and grass control product that is complementary to the bestselling glyphosate-based Roundup® branded products.

GroundClear®, whose active ingredient is ammonium nonanoate, is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for organic uses in and around patios, walkways, driveways, landscape beds and ornamental gardens.

Beyond the OMRI listing and its usage versatility, GroundClear® addresses performance in terms of efficacy and speed. For example:

  • It absorbs on contact and starts working immediately.
  • Gardeners will see results in 15 minutes.
  • It effectively kills all types of weeds and grasses.
  • It is rainproof in two hours.
  • It can be applied any time of year when weeds are small and actively growing.

We consistently are looking for new solutions to meet consumer needs. That’s why we have a multi-year plan to bring a range of GroundClear® solutions to gardeners with GroundClear® Weed and Grass Killer marking the start.
