Roundup is the brand name of a systemic, broad-spectrum herbicide produced by the U.S.company Monsanto, and contains the active ingredient glyphosate. Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the USA, and Roundup has been the number one selling herbicide worldwide since at least 1980.
Monsanto developed and patented the glyphosate molecule in the 1970s. Pesticides based on these poisonous chemicals, including Roundup have been banned in various countries due to their toxic effects on humans and wildlife.
The main active ingredient of Roundup is the isopropylamine salt of glyphosate. Another important ingredient of Roundup is the surfactant POEA (polyethoxylated tallow amine), which is known for its toxicity in wildlife. It increases herbicide penetration in plant and animal cells.
Several weed species, known as superweeds, have developed Roundup resistance largely because of repeated exposure.
A Swedish study shows that farmers and animals exposed to "Roundup", double their risk for
Monsanto also produces seeds which grow into plants genetically engineered to be tolerant to
glyphosate, which are known as Roundup Ready crops. The genes contained in these seeds are
patented. Roundup commercial formulations were never submitted to test by the United States
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); its main active ingredient, glyphosate, received
EPA Toxicity Class of III for oral and inhalation exposure.
