has been present in South Africa for many years and has become the
household name with quality products
such as Roundup® and Guardian S®. Monsanto's herbicide products include
both selective and non-selective herbicides for control of weeds in
agricultural, non-crop, industrial, forestry and conservation areas.
Roundup® (L0407) is a non-selective herbicide and was registered in
1975, and is still the leading glyphosate-based herbicide today.
Roundup® Turbo is the latest addition to the glyphosate product range.
It contains 450g/L glyphosate (25% higher
loading) and is rain fast after only two hours. Biotechnology has
changed the way of farming with the introduction of Roundup Ready
cotton, soyabeans and maize. This technology provides the farmer with an
excellent weed control tool. Roundup PowerMax® (L6702)
540g/L Glyphosate herbicide is the only Roundup formulation registered
to be used on Roundup Ready crops, and Roundup WeatherMax® (L8065) is
registered for Forestry with Roundup Turbo.
Monsanto's selective herbicides are based on acetochlor which gives
excellent grass control and control also certain broad leave weeds.
Guardian S® (L4862) is the safest acetochlor-based formulation available
for pre-emergence application in maize.
Product quality and crop safety are two of the most important criteria when developing new products and formulations
