Now that the patent has run out on glyphosate has anyone used any of the less expensive new formulations. I have seen a 2 1/2 gallon jug 41% glyphosate for less than $50.
Do you have the name of the $45 one ?? or which one works??I have used a couple of different brands of generic. One was $77 for 2 1/2 gallons. The one I use now is $45 for 2 1/2 gallons. This one seems to work faster than Round Up. The last time I bought Round Up it was $123.
I always mix some kind of soap in to break the water tension so it doesn't bead up and run off. At the moment I am using Alberto VO5 shampoo since my mother-in-law had 75 bottles of it and we don't use it.
The patent on the chemical, glyphosate, expired in 2000. It's their patent on the Roundup gene in the seeds that is expiring. Not sure on the date for that.From what we've been told roundup will be dropping dramatically in price. I guess since the patent has run out they have to cut the price or lose alot of the market.
