BioSafe Systems LLC has announced that AXXE® Broad Spectrum Herbicide is a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased® Product. The USDA label is used to identify products that have a notable percentage of biobased content that comes from renewable sources, such as plant, animal, marine, or forestry feedstocks.
AXXE’s active ingredient, ammonium nonanoate, is a plant fatty acid that penetrates a plant cell walls to damage its cellular functions, causing plant failure within hours of application. The herbicide is commonly applied to weeds around buildings and structures with no residue.
“We applaud BioSafe Systems LLC for earning the USDA Certified Biobased Product label,” said Kate Lewis, USDA BioPreferred Program. “Products from BioSafe Systems LLC are contributing to an ever-expanding marketplace that adds value to renewable agriculture commodities, creates jobs in rural communities, and decreases our reliance on petroleum.”
