Roundup was a revolutionary new herbicide, or weed killer, when it hit the market in the 1970s. It and other pesticides that contain the active ingredient glyphosate are the most widely used herbicides in the world. Recent research has produced conflicting evidence as to whether these pesticides cause cancer in people exposed to them.
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. The overall Roundup line of products, which includes genetically modified seeds, represented about half of Monsanto’s yearly revenue.[ The product is marketed to consumers by Scotts Miracle-Gro Company.
Roundup is a brand-name herbicide that contains the active ingredient glyphosate. Monsanto, an American agricultural chemical company, first sold the herbicide commercially in 1974. It produced a wide range of weed killers and other products under the Roundup brand. German drug and chemical giant Bayer acquired Monsanto in 2018 and began phasing out the Monsanto company name. But Bayer continues to make and market Roundup.
