Glysortia to debut granular glyphosate in US
The US generic glyphosate herbicide supplier, Glysortia (Hudson, Wisconsin), is introducing the first dry granular formulations of the herbicide based on an ammonium salt to the US market. It will offer an 88.8% formulation with 80% glyphosate acid and a 77.7% formulation with 70% acid. The products will be supplied in plastic bags suitable for treating 40 acres (16 ha) at about 1 lb/acre (1 kg/ha). They provide a higher concentration of active ingredient in a compact package and easier handling than liquid isopropylamine salt formulations, Glysortia maintains.
