DrugWatch: Alternatives To Roundup

“Glyphosate is a widely used herbicide and the active ingredient in several popular weed killers, including Roundup. It is known for its effectiveness in killing a broad spectrum of weeds and plants, making it a valuable tool in agriculture, landscaping, and home gardening. However, there are concerns about its potential hazards, so that’s why you can opt for alternatives. Natural Roundup alternatives don’t contain glyphosate. Most available products contain plant-based oils or soaps. They may also have acetic acid, or vinegar, that damages the leaf cuticle and causes cell leakage to rapidly kill weeds. Various soap, vinegar and salt combinations are readily available, safe and natural Roundup alternatives. These products also kill other plants on contact, so you should only apply them directly to weeds. Learn more HERE
