Ok, that's 85 gallons of the more dilute version for regular weeds, but it's still good for comparison. I posting this due to the deal on 16oz less concentrated roundup posted earlier, so people see this deal too. This stuff lasts, so for me it's a better deal and will last me a decade.

This is a potent chemical, so please don't abuse it. It's not good for you or your yard. It can be a really handy tool, though.

Anybody following the European ban on this stuff? Seems like a seriously nasty chemical for the environment...

Grandpa, why can't we go outside without masks on?

Well, sonny. Once upon a time we had these things called weeds, in our "yards". Have you ever read about plants, son?...

AFAIK there's no ban, As always, there is pseudo science being used to try to ban something.

It's just about as toxic to people as water. It literally works on a metabolic pathway that does not exist in mammals.

It's salt. Spraying it on your yard isn't going to do anything.


The euro-ban has more to do with taking business away from monsanto than it does roundup. ​

Cue the organic folks who think they have the inside scoop when much harsher, more toxic pesticides are used in greater quantities on organic produce. Good deal.

I second the comment about this stuff being great for the woody weeds. I used a concentrated mixture (1:1) of this stuff to rid my yard of the incredibly invasive Japanese knotweed.

Not everyone who is into organics thinks the same way. Some who grow plants don't use any pesticides at all

Glyphosate degrades quickly as a result of microbial action in soil.

Remember that interview with the ecology PhD saying it's so safe you could drink it and then quickly refusing when offered a glass of the stuff?

Just because it is known to work on the the shikimate pathway doesn't mean that it is the only way it works

The euro-ban has more to do with taking business away from monsanto than it does roundup. ​
I've written on this a bunch of times. When Roundup was approved, they decided that given the levels of exposure seen by the typical consumer, it constituted no appreciable danger (i.e. like living in Denver, you take a pretty big hit on your chances of skin cancer). THAT DOES NOT MEAN IT IS SAFE, only that for the application approved the risk was deemed "acceptable." This was back when the EPA was not nearly so politisized and did it's job.

Spraying it meant killing the field pretty much, with a 3 day - 2 week wait before even planting seeds. Then no more applications. Compare that today with let's say Round-up Ready Sugar Beets. I believe it is 4 sprayings, as least 3 of which occur while it is growing. Spraying Glyphosate on a growing plant is going to completely change the contamination profile, and levels.

The EPA is supposed to carefully examine each new application of a known pesticide on a crop. The problem is that the testing is on a budgetary shoestring for an already "approved": product, and often they simply will approve it based on data supplied by the manufacturer. So you are trusting childrens health to manufacturer unverified data... vomit Speaking of which, they have found the soil residue numbers from Monsanto utterly bogus, and applying in a number of best cases. In cool, more clay type soil I believe the residue could last up it was either 120 or 180 days. I'm doing this off the top of my head, but you get my point. It is not innocuous, and it CAN get into your ground water.

The big issue is that between Round-up Ready Sugar Beets, Corn, and Soybeans, I've seen the claim of 80% of the food in our supermarkets has some level of contamination. The original EPA approval in no way envisioned this. So while the EU Commission may also use regulation to hurt US companies at every opportunity (and we don't, that is what Trump needs to change), just because they are biased doesn't make them wrong. I believe that was the mantra for both sides of our previous presidential election - Yeah, my candidate is an @-hole, but they still are right.
