Product Category:
Active Ingredient:               Glyphosate
Chemical Group:                   Organophosphorus

Core Properties:
  • Glyphosate was first reported as a herbicide in 1971.
  • In pure chemical terms glyphosate is an organophosphate in that it contains carbon and phosphorous. However, it does not affect the nervous system in the same way as organophosphate insecticides, and is not a cholinesterase inhibitor.
  • After application, any Glyphosate that reaches the soil is tightly bound to soil particles and will not wash off, nor remain active. Glyphosate rapidly broken down in soil and water to natural products – carbon dioxide, water, nitrogen and phosphates.
  • Glyphosate will not adversely affect soil microorganisms; in fact they actually feed on it to break it down! It does not adversely affect the natural breakdown of plant matter in the soil. A herbicide that is truly easy on the environment.
  • Glyphosate can be tank mixed with residual herbicides to give long-term weed control under certain situations.
  • Unlike mechanical tillage, Glyphosate does not cause soil disturbance, root pruning or trunk bruising. Shallow feeder roots are left intact and the soil structure is not adversely affected. Tillage implements often damage irrigation lines, cause erosion and surface sealing which reduces water penetration and causes excess water run-off, which potentially reduces harvest size, quality and value. Water run-off may make the use of harvesting equipment difficult.
  • Unlike other herbicides, when Glyphosate enters the plant, it translocate's (i.e. moves through the sap stream) throughout the plant, killing it roots and all. So there’s no risk of re-growth of the sprayed weeds.

Mode of Action:

Glyphosate is a broad spectrum, non-selective systemic herbicide. It is effective in killing all plant types including grasses, perennials and woody plants. As a herbicide Glyphosate works by being absorbed into the plant mainly though its leaves but also through soft stalk tissue. It is then transported throughout the plant where it acts on various enzyme systems inhibiting amino acid metabolism in what is known as the shikimic acid pathway. This pathway exists in higher plants and microorganisms but not in animals. Plants treated with glyphosate slowly die over a period of days or weeks, and because the chemical is transported throughout the plant, no part survives.

Method of Application:

  • When weeds are of 6 ~ 8 inch; spray Glyphosate covering all weeds thoroughly.

Water Quality / PH Adjuster:

Glyphosate products are formulated to be mixed with water to facilitate application. Often, that water (whether it comes from a well or rural water association) contains large amounts of dissolved salts. Hardness is a measure of how much salt water contains. The harder the water, the higher the salt concentration. These dissolved salts in hard water may reduce glyphosate’s effectiveness, particularly calcium and magnesium salts. These salts have a positive charge and may associate with the negatively charged glyphosate molecule, displacing the isopropylamine or other salt used in the formulated product. Plants absorb less glyphosate bound with calcium or magnesium salts than the formulated salt of glyphosate, thus reducing glyphosate activity.

Although specific recommendations vary, most glyphosate labels recommend adding ammonium sulfate. The role of ammonium sulfate is considerably different than the function of nonionic surfactants. Surfactants are active primarily on the leaf surface and improve herbicide absorption into plants. Ammonium sulfate, on the other hand, is active primarily in the spray tank where it prevents the antagonistic salts from interacting with glyphosate. Ammonium sulfate should always be added to the tank prior to glyphosate to prevent the formation of inactive complexes between glyphosate and antagonistic cations.

Special Recommendation:

  • Always use clean water for preparing spray solution.
  • Use zero drift Nozzle/ Spray shield when spraying in the field.
  • Mixing with other herbicides may reduce the activity of Glyphosate.
  • Do not use Metal sprayers, always use Plastic Sprayers.


Glyphosate is available in 1 liter and 5 liters pack sizes.
