Monsanto to mine more glyphosate material

Monsanto’s US phosphorus mining subsidiary, P4 Production (Soda Springs, Idaho), is seeking to open a new site to increase production of the raw material for Monsanto’s herbicide, Roundup (glyphosate). The US Bureau of Land Management has issued a draft environmental impact statement for the 739 acre (299 ha) site.
