Let’s Talk about Glyphosate

hands with ground

There is a lot of discussion about glyphosate, the active ingredient in most Roundup® brand herbicides and other weed-control products. It makes sense: across Australia and around the globe, people are looking for information to answer questions and engage in conversations about this widely-used herbicide.

We want to help you on your search for answers by sharing fact-based information, scientific findings from independent sources and institutions, and first-person accounts from those who rely on glyphosate.


We hope that by openly communicating about glyphosate – from why it was created to how it works, from its impacts on the environment and health to its role in modern agriculture – we can provide clarity on one of the most talked-about topics in agriculture.


There are many online resources you can visit to find out more information, including resources that you can use when speaking with others about glyphosate.
