Glyphosate Facts

Transparency on safety aspects and use of glyphosate-containing herbicides in Europe



Glyphosate is used by farmers to control a variety of plants in agriculture. Glyphosate has contributed in several ways to change farming practices since it was introduced. By chemically controlling a broad spectrum of weeds and their entire root systems, glyphosate has eliminated or reduced the need for ploughing the soils. These reduced tillage practises allow farmers to plant crop seeds directly into stubble fields.
