Ornamec 170 Herbicide

Is Ornamec suitable/safe to use to kill grass in my raspberry patch? If so, can the berries be harvested the same year I use it?

RE: Ornamec 170 Herbicide

Ornamec is labeled only for ornamental plants. However, there is a clause in their label that stipulates that any ornamental that will be harvested for food cannot be used until one year after application.

So, not only would you be going against the label directives since you really can't call your raspberries an ornamental plant and they aren't growing in an ornamental bed.....but you won't be able to harvest the berries. And what about the birds and animals that feed on the berries?

Here is a link that might be useful: Ornamec label
