“Glyphosate-free Roundup” for Sale in Austria is Vinegar

Vinegar bottle and Roundup container

The active ingredient of Scotts’ herbicidal product is vinegar

A new type of Roundup is on sale in Austrian garden centres. It’s the same old bottle with the same familiar brand name and is marketed by Scotts, under licence from Monsanto. The only difference compared with the old-style Roundup is that the new one has a prominent label on the front saying it’s formulated “without glyphosate” (“ohne Glyphosat” in German).

On the back, on the ingredients label, the “active substance” is defined as none other than vinegar (“Essigsäure”).
