GreenMatch EX is a non-selective, post-emergent weed killer for organic agriculture

Marrone Organic Innovations discovers, develops and markets environmentally responsible products for weed, plant disease and pest management. Through a combination of in-licensed technology and its own R&D, MOI develops products that target markets needing better and safer solutions.

GreenMatch EX, Marrone's new herbicide is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI).

GreenMatch EX is a non-selective, post-emergent weed killer based on the essential oil of lemongrass. Launched in February of 2008, this solution to weed control problems on organic crops was formulated to meet standards of the National Organic Program, and is also a registered material in the Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Organic Food Program.

Many organic operations will only use products that have passed the extensive review of OMRI. “GreenMatch EX gives organic growers the most efficient, longest-lasting burndown of a wide spectrum of weed species, and the product’s OMRI listing assures them that their organic certification is safe,” states Julie Versman, Vice President of Marketing at Marrone Organic Innovations.

“Extensive testing and successful grower use shows it outperforms existing organic herbicide offerings and provides farmers with a realistic alternative to costly flaming, cultivating and hand hoeing,” states David Warman, National Sales Manager for MOI. “Many western growers are already achieving excellent results using GreenMatch EX against typical weeds such as spurge, thistle, crabgrass and bindweed. It is sold in 5 gallon pails for use in food crops and is also gaining momentum with municipalities who are limiting the use of chemical herbicides.”

The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) is a national nonprofit organization that provides organic certifiers, growers, manufacturers, and suppliers an independent review of products intended for use in certified organic production, handling, and processing.

The product is manufactured in California, and marketed in the western US by Monterey AgResources who can be reached at 559-499-2100 or
