Pelargonic acid

Pelargonic acid (the most used compound of this class), extracted for the first time from Pelargonium roseum leaves, is a broad-spectrum contact herbicide for the control of annual and, mossy weeds.

Pelargonic acid is considered a compound of low toxicity and low environmental impact, but has no residual activity (Dayan et al., 2009). It has only contact activity, and, thus, it is necessary to spray most of the plant for complete control. It is effective on all weeds, including moss.
