Beware of This Glyphosate Product


Shopping for Glysophate I came across an add for a 43 percent Glyphosate product in a local farm store. My daughter was with me and being a Bio-Chemist reads labels diligently.

As she was reading aloud I caught a word or phrase that didn't seem quite right for Glyphosate only, something to the effect it prevents growth for a year.
Doing more investigation we discovered this product also included a soil sterilizer.

Now I wish I had gotten a pic of the jug but didn't so I'll describe the best I can so possibly someone won't apply something that's not desirable for them.

Red containers sold in Qts., gallons and 2.5 gallons. Label reads RM 43 Glyphosate Total Vegetation Control.

To see the red container and description google RM 43 Glysophate.

beware or be aware?



RM43™ 43% Glyphosate Plus Weed Preventer Total Vegetation Control

RM43™ offers season-long control of grasses, weeds, brush, vines and trees. This concentrate kills existing vegetation as well as prevents future growth of listed species. Use RM43™ only on locations where no vegetation growth is desired for up to one year.




nothing seems out of the ordinary given what it advertises itself to be.

Our farm stores, Lowes and HD all stock Glysophate products in both versions. I don't see anything unusual at all. Perhaps it is just your first experience.

I surely didn't mean my post that way. It could be as simple as you had not seen such a product before and others have so it is a matter of something new for you but not others n


I think the bottom line of your post is:

Pay attention to what you are buying. While you may be used to a product being one way, there are often products out there that you may mistake for the product you are familiar with and you could end up with results you don't want n

And neither did I.

I don't think it was a wasted post at all. It will probably save a few people from making a terrible mistake. That particular label above does not prominently feature total kill for up to one year as do most of the products I see around here.
