I don't want to spray my weeds because herbicides are very toxic and will remain in the soil where they are sprayed; is this acceptable?
Most herbicides are considered low or moderately toxic. All chemicals have a half-life in the environment. Half-life is defined as the amount of time it takes to biodegrade one half of the original amount. Herbicides are broken down by sunlight and microbial activity in the soil.
