Glyphosate is a synthetic compound, of the phosphonoglycine substance group, which is an aminophosphonic analogue of the natural amino acid glycine. Glyphosate is a non-selective, broad spectrum herbicide that is systemic in its action.

Glyphosate is a synthetic compound, of the phosphonoglycine substance group, which is an aminophosphonic analogue of the natural amino acid glycine.  Glyphosate is a non-selective, broad spectrum herbicide that is systemic in its action. It is applied as a foliar spray, being absorbed through the leaves and soft stem material, making it effective for post-emergance control of weeds only.  It is degraded  The mode of action of glyphosate is that it is an amino acid inhibitor,  due to the inhibition of amino acid synthesis due to enzyme degradation. The prevention of the formation of these amino acids disrupts protein synthesis and prevents cellular function. Death in the plant is slow, taking several weeks, although the first signs of treatment (yellowing of the leaves) becomes visible after a few days.  Glyphosate binds with soil particles immediately, meaning that is it inactive in the soil very quickly, and is therefore not suitable for pre-emergence treatment.  Glyphosate is broad-spectrum in its activity, effectively controlling any unwanted plant to which it is applied, including annual broad leafed plants, grasses, woody plants and perennials.  It is important the glyphosate is not applied to wanted plants, as it will kill them. Glyphosate is approved for all edible crops, all non edible crops, amenity vegetation, apple, asparagus, barley, bulb onion, cherry, combining pea, damson, durum wheat, field bean, forest, forest nursery, grassland, green cover on land not being used for crop production, hard surfaces, leek, linseed, mustard, natural surfaces not intended to bear vegetation, oats, oilseed rape, pear, permeable surfaces overlying soil, plum, sugar beet, swede, turnip, vining pea and wheat. Glyphosate is available in a variety of concentrations and formulations, and in conjunction with a number of other active compounds.

 

AgChemAccess supplied glyphosate as a solubleconcentrate of 360 g/l  glyphosate as the products Charger and Rutler.  For glyphosate is combination with other compounds. for ready to use formulations, and formulations specifically tailored to amenity turf please contact AgChemAccess directly.

 

Glyphosate was originally developed by Monsanto, and sold as the RoundUp range – including RoundUp Ace, RoundUp Advance, roundup amenity, roundup assure, roundup bioactive, roundup bioactive 3G. Bayer sell glyphosate as Complete weedkiller, Glyphosate spot weeder, Glyphosate Systemic Weedkiller, Pistol and Proshield. Dow Agrosciences less glyphosate as Dow Agro Sciences Glyphosate 360.
