What is Glyphosate?
Glyphosate (RoundUp) is a herbicide designed to kill grasses and weeds that compete with food crops. Glyphosate is absorbed through the leaves and accumulates in actively dividing cells where it stops production of the amino acids. One of its most important features is that it breaks down quickly and does not persist in soil.
Plants designated "RoundUp Ready" have been genetically modified so that glyophosate does not interfere with their growth while still killing the weeds among them. Plants that have been so modified include:
