Glysortia to supply generic glyphosate in US
A new US company has been set up to supply generic glyphosate herbicide. Glysortia (Hudson, Wisconsin) will source the active ingredient from the “most trusted and highest calibre” suppliers in China, the company says. It will market two formulations of glyphosate isopropylamine salt under the Glysort and Glysort Plus brands. Glysortia can also supply 97% purity ai rather than the industry standard of 95% technical, it notes. “Assured delivery of the highest quality product at a fair price is needed to survive in the glyphosate business, particularly now when margins are so slim,” says Glysortia founder and CEO Rick Beardmore.
