Locations in which Glyphosate might be used

How will non-agricultural sectors manage weed control if glyphosate is banned in Europe?

If that is a question on your mind, we can help.

Kynetec is planning on gathering insights across all major non-agricultural sectors on:

  • The decision-making process for replacing glyphosate
  • Who are the decision makers
  • What alternatives are being considered
  • What the ideal replacement solution would be

Representing EU countries where glyphosate use is approved until 15th December 2022, the country scope* will include France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Sweden.

Manual removal, biological control, chemical alternatives, mowing, animal grazing, hot water, foam or steam, thermal weed control … who, which, when, why … little information is available on the direction of changes that will have to be introduced to non-agricultural sectors upon glyphosate withdrawal.

Your questions answered

We will conduct in-depth qualitative interviews with decision-makers around weed control across all major non-agricultural sectors. Companies maintaining railways / motorways / airports, amenities / parks / roadside; Landscape contractors and gardeners employed by sports facilities, businesses, tourism.

If you need to understand drivers, motivations and perspectives to help make business decisions with confidence around glyphosate evolution in the non-crop sector, email
