Description

General description

Glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine) (sold commercially as Roundup) is the most widely used broad-spectrum systemic herbicide in the world. Consequently, the environmental effects of glyphosphate and its mechanism of action are an important area of active research.
