Monsanto completes glyphosate plant expansion
Monsanto has marked the completion of a $200 million expansion to its US Roundup (glyphosate) herbicide manufacturing plant in Luling, Louisiana. The near two-year project began in April 2008 ( Agrow No 541, p 1). The process improvements were aimed at increasing production capacity by 20% and reducing emissions. All of the Roundup sold in the US is produced at Luling or at Monsanto’s plant in Muscatine, Iowa, the company points out.
