Comment of the Week

It’s interesting to notice that the promoters of Roundup always say that glysophate is not toxic. Not that Roundup is not toxic, but that glysophate is not toxic. I’ve read somewhere (that i forget) that glysophate itself is pretty weak and ineffectual as a herbicide; glysophate alone is probably non-toxic. If you sprayed just glysophate on your lawn, you might see little to no effect. Roundup, on the other hand, is a concoction of many adjuvants to glysophate that disrupt cell walls so that glysophate can enter the cell and kill the vegetation. Always check to see if the person is defending glysophate by itself, or Roundup, the entire concoction. If they’re just defending glysophate they might be trying to confuse the issue.
