How Roundup Works

This is the place where we take a closer look at what makes Roundup different to other competitor weed killers. A glimpse of the advanced technology that has been applied to create the world's best selling weedkiller.

The science

The most advanced weedkiller on earth

Roundup incorporates a highly effective systemic action, developed originally by Roundup for the agricultural industry. Here’s how it works:

  • Roundup is sprayed on to the leaves of the weed
  • It's absorbed through the leaves and enters the plant's sap stream
  • Roundup is carried to the growing points of the weed’s roots and shoots
  • Roundup kills the leaves, shoots and roots
  • Soil is left ready for replanting
Because it kills right down to the root, Roundup will eradicate almost all weeds, including deep-rooted perennials such as Pampas Grass, Bamboo and Lantana.

Why is Roundup effective?

Thanks to advanced weedkilling technology, honed over many years, Roundup is one of the safest weedkillers available when it’s used correctly.
One of the reasons for this is because Roundup deactivates upon contact with soil and is degraded by micro organisms.
 
Additionally, with Roundup, once the treated leaves have dried:
 
Children and pets can return to the area
You can carry out new planting
Additionally, the broad range of Ready to Use products, such as Pump ‘N Go and Pull & Spray, allows you to target individual weeds precisely, even in areas where there are plenty of other flowers and plants.
