Glyphosate applications are pushing the global herbicides market towards a poised growth. Glyphosate, a glycine derivative is a broad-spectrum, non-selective herbicide, which is applied directly to the plant foliage.

 Small quantity of the solution is also used as a plant growth regulator. It is useful in all annual and perennial plants, such as broad level weeds, woody plants, grasses, sedges etc. Glyphosate has moderate toxicity that results in eye irritation and sensitizations to humans.

“Various market leaders around the world offer their glyphosate herbicide under different brand names. BASF‘s glyphosate-based Extreme herbicides is one of the popular international brand for weeds control in Roundup Ready soybeans. KIXOR range of herbicides of BASF is one of the fastest and most effective weed control herbicides which are used in glyphosate-resistant weeds of Canada fleabane,” state AMR analyst

Glyphosate is a low cost solution and less toxic; hence, it is mostly used by the farmers and roundup brand herbicides. Further, it helps to kill weeds in non-agricultural lands such as gardens, railway tracks, industrial complexes, etc.

 “The key factor behind the rapid adoption of glyphosate herbicides is its less toxicity towards human, animal and environment. The product possesses various favourable environmental characteristics, such as low volatility, soil binding, microbial degradation, positive effect over microorganisms etc. This above characteristics makes the herbicides a suitable and sustainable agriculture, land management and wildlife solution,” further adds analyst.
