Description: The remainder consists of inactive ingredients including adjuvants, chemicals that are added to improve the performance of the active ingredient. Roundup’s main adjuvant is the surfactant polyethoxylated tallowamine, which helps glyphosate penetrate plant cells. The Roundup concentration recommended for agricultural use is 1–2% in water.
Description: The Function of Adjuvants. Adjuvants play an important role in herbicide formulations and spray mixtures to improve herbicide performance. Herbicide labels are the most important source of information for adjuvant recommendations that cover diverse use situations and tank mixtures.
Description: For example, Roundup (glyphosate) is a more water-soluble herbicide that requires a more polar type of surfactant (such as the ethoxylated fatty amines) to improve activity. Highly lipophilic surfactants can actually decrease the performance of Roundup in comparison to no surfactant at all.
Description: Aimee Wagstaff, a lawyer for Hardeman, told a packed courtroom during her opening statement that chemicals in Roundup made the weed killer more toxic than glyphosate alone, causing the man’s cancer.
Description: Roundup is the brand name of a systemic, broad-spectrum glyphosate-based herbicide originally produced by Monsanto, which Bayer acquired in 2018. Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the United States. As of 2009, sales of Roundup herbicides still represented about 10 percent of Monsanto's revenue despite competition from Chinese producers of other glyphosate-based herbicides.
Description: Herbicide labels will recommend adjuvant products using types similar to the adjuvants provided in the Compendium. In this printed guide, products that have multiple func-tions may be cross-listed in up to three adjuvant categories. Entries in the online version of the Compendium may list up to four adjuvant categories.
Description: ADJUVANTS – Oils, surfactants and other additives for farm chemicals | 3 FoReWoRD ANNUAl worldwide spray adjuvant sales are currently estimated to be worth more than $1.5 billion. In Australia alone, over 300 branded products are currently registered for use as spray adjuvants, surfactants or wetting agents and these products
Description: The median lethal dose for Roundup (0.7%) was nearly half that for glyphosate, meaning Roundup was twice as toxic as the single chemical alone. The authors of the study concluded that the demonstrated toxicity of Roundup, even at concentrations below those in agricultural use, could contribute to reproduction problems.
Description: The source of Roundup®‘s cytotoxic effects was investigated. •. Adjuvant POEA contributes Roundup®‘s ability of inducing apoptosis in A549 cells. •. Adjuvant POEA contributes Roundup®‘s ability of inducing DNA damage in A549 cells. •. Corresponding active ingredient is unable to induce apoptosis and DNA damage.
Description: Background. The glyphosate-based herbicide RoundUp (styled: Roundup) was developed in the 1970s by Monsanto.Glyphosate-based herbicides were initially used in a similar way to paraquat and diquat, as non-selective herbicides.Attempts were made to apply them to row crops, but problems with crop damage kept glyphosate-based herbicides from being widely used for this purpose.
