 Information for those who use "Round-Up"

Rylan Thompson, our extension agent sent out this publication about Round-up:

Be aware that in 2024, the chemicals in the herbicide "Round-up" will change as will the uses for each product but the name will remain the same:

  • There are 6 products labelled Round-Up:  3 still have glyphosate in them AS WELL AS other chemicals.
  • None of the 6 is pure glyphosate.
  • Each of the 6 has specific uses:  None for vegetable garden; only ONE for landscape beds; and only ONE for lawns.
  • READ the label CAREFULLY or risk killing wanted plantings!

The article explains how each of the chemicals works, uses for each type of Round-Up product, toxicities, and soil impact:  Update on Roundup-Branded Herbicides for Consumers  pub. W1237:
