We applied sodium chlorate in September to clear weeds from an area to be used as a vegetable patch and in the soil where our greenhouse now is. I'm now worried about how long this will stay ion the soil and when it will be safe to plant crops.



I think it may be 6 months but which one did you use? that will be more accurate way of telling

I thought it was banned now, or is it in the pipeline to be banned. I would say 6 months too, but i didnt know there were varying degrees of sodium chlorta,e i thought once its in soil thats it for months...
