Glyphosate is used as a herbicide in the agricultural industry for weed killing. But very recently in regions such as Europe there is a push from the governments to replace glyphosate with organic solutions such as acetic acid and others. Research to test functionalities and toxicities of the latter in comparison to glyphosate is underway.
