Use of glyphosate

Glyphosate-based pesticides (i.e. formulations containing glyphosate and other chemicals) are used in agriculture and horticulture, primarily to combat weeds that compete with cultivated crops.

Glyphosate is an active substance used for the production of pesticides, which has been authorised in the EU since 2002. It is the most frequently used herbicide worldwide and in the EU, and one of several hundred active substances that have been assessed by Member States and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in recent years.
