What is glufosinate and where is it still used?

Glufosinate is a non-selectively acting herbicide consisting of a special amino acid first found in a bacterium. Accordingly, it is a bioherbicide, but this must ultimately be irrelevant to its evaluation. Its approval in the EU expired in 2017 without a new application because manufacturer studies could not invalidate concerns that a significant risk to mammals and insects could be ruled out. Glufosinate continues to be used worldwide, including for the siccation of soybeans, canola, alfalfa, potatoes, lentils, beans and sunflowers.


Robust and extremely powerful – the volt.cube supplies the electrical energy.


Working widths of up to 12 m allow fast and safe siccation.


The residue-free liquid lowers the electrical resistance of the plants.
