Glyphosate is a widely used herbicide that controls broadleaf weeds and grasses.
Glyphosate targets a broad range of weeds and is important in the production of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and glyphosate-resistant field crops such as corn and soybean.
It is effective at managing invasive and noxious weeds.
In addition, glyphosate breaks down in the environment, can be used for no-till and low-till farming which can reduce soil erosion, and is useful for integrated pest management.
Glyphosate can be applied in agricultural, residential and commercial settings using a wide range of application methods, including aerial sprays, ground broadcast sprayers of various types, shielded and hooded sprayers, wiper applicators, sponge bars, injection systems, and controlled droplet applicators.
Residues of glyphosate on any food or feed item are safe for consumers if they comply with the established tolerances.
