What is Roundup®?
Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer is a herbicide, a chemical product recommended for killing unwanted plants on lawns, gardens, driveways & patios.
All Roundup® products contain the same active ingredient, a herbicide called “glyphosate”. Roundup® is used by landscapers, gardeners, farmers and homeowners to control weeds that compete with crops and other plants. The main ingredient in Roundup® is glyphosate, a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant.
Landscapers and farmers quickly adopted glyphosate, after Monsanto introduced Roundup®, enabling farmers to kill weeds without killing their crops.
In 2007, glyphosate was the most used herbicide in the United States agricultural sector and the second most used in home and garden.
