Monsanto gets German approval for Roundup Gel
Monsanto has received German approval for its herbicide, Roundup Gel (glyphosate), for home and garden use. It represents the latest generation of weed killer for the home and garden user, the company says. The gel formulation enables greater precision and eliminates the risk of wind blowing spray onto non-target plants, it adds. “It took a lot of investment in research and development to create a product that is even more user-friendly than spray-bottle formulations,” says Monsanto’s commercial head of international lawn and garden products, Ralph Dyrnes. Roundup Gel is already available in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, UK and France and is expected to be available to German gardeners for the 2016 gardening season.
