Question of the Week - What are the advantages and disadvantages of herbicides?

Each week, we will answer a question from our readers regarding our operations and community outreach here in Puerto Rico.

This week we answer the question, “what are the advantages and disadvantages of herbicides?”.

Herbicides allow us to take care of crops and allow farmers to optimize the use of their resources and time. Also, they’re used to prepare the planting area and maintain crops weed free.

At Monsanto, we make sure that our products are effective and that they are reliable and safe. The herbicides that we manufacture pass rigorous studies and quality controls. Only those that have been certified as safe for the environment and human health reach the market.

The disadvantages of herbicides arise at the time of application, when the recommendations of use are not strictly followed. For this reason, all our products include those recommendations in their packaging.
