Many formulations of Roundup® (and glyphosate) have been tested over the top of Roundup Ready® crops in Australia and overseas. As each formulation is unique in its ‘chemical fingerprint’ and/or manufacturing process, a range of weed control and crop safety effects are observed. Monsanto stands behind the safety of its products, including its Roundup branded herbicides, which have a 30-year history of safe use. Regulatory agencies around the world, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the European Commission, along with independent researchers, have thoroughly evaluated Roundup branded products and their active ingredient, glyphosate, and approved them for use in more than 130 countries worldwide.
