What’s the difference between Glyphosate and Glufosinate-ammonium ?

Both of them belong to sterilant herbicide ,but there still have big difference :

1. Different killing speed :

Glyphosate : Effect reach to peak takes 7-10 days .

Glufosinate-ammonium : Effect reach to peak takes 3-5 days .


2. Different resistance :

Both of them have good killing effect for all kinds of weeds , but for some Malignant Weed ,such as

Goosegrass Herb, Bulrush, they are easy to develop resistance towards Glyphosate because of long time use ,

therefore the killing effect for these weeds is not that good .

As Glufosinate-ammonium application time is shorter than Glyphosate ,

these kinds of weeds has not develop resistance to it yet . 


3. Different mode of action :

Glyphosate belong to sterilant herbicide , it can kill the weed’s roots completely due to its good conductivity .

Glufosinate-ammonium mainly mode of action is touch-to-kill, therefore it may cannot kill the weed’s roots completely .


4. Different safety :

Because of its conductivity ,glyphosate has longer residual period ,it cannot apply on shallow-roots plant ,such as vegetable/grape/papaya/corn .

Glufosinate-ammonium do not have any residual after applying 1-3 days , its suitable and safe for any kinds of plants .
