    Default Bayer Confirms End of Sale of Glyphosate-Based Herbicides for US Lawn & Garden Market

    Bayer have announced that they will no longer sell glyphosate-based herbicides to U.S. gardeners as of 2023, following the costly litigation battle over their cancer causing weedkiller Roundup.
    Bayer Monsanto stated Thursday that “the company and its partners will replace its glyphosate-based products in the U.S. residential Lawn & Garden market with new formulations that rely on alternative active ingredients beginning in 2023, subject to a timely review by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state counterparts…..”
    “As the vast majority of claims in the litigation come from Lawn & Garden market users, this action largely eliminates the primary source of future claims beyond an assumed latency period. There will be no change in the availability of the company’s glyphosate formulations in the U.S. professional and agricultural markets,” Bayer continued.
    Sustainable Pulse and Detox Project Director, Henry Rowlands, commented on Bayer’s announcement; “It is a great victory in a small battle for the removal of glyphosate from the Lawn & Garden market, however this is just part of a much larger War. We must all remember that this will not stop glyphosate being sprayed in parks, schools and on our food crops in ever greater amounts across the U.S. and the world. It is time to phase the chemical out globally and to replace it with safe alternatives.”

    This is great news! But I doubt farmers would be happy after learning about this, worse thing, they may end up doubling down their use in protest.

    I can imagine them hoarding prior to 2023 when the ban takes effect. But long-term, it does seem that homeowners and gardeners will have to practice safer weed control. And yes, I'm looking forward to the time when it is banned globally.
