Can we feed the world without weedkillers?

Modern farming has become increasingly productive partly due to the ability to effectively control weeds. With a growing global population and higher food demand, maintaining and increasing food production in Europe could be hampered without access to glyphosate

 

Infographic showing that we could have a 60-100% higher food demand in the world by 2050 if weedkillers are banned.

Infographic showing how glyphosate helps farmers control weeds for crops such as cereals, oilseed rape, field beans, maize, sunflowers, sugar beet and grassland.

Infographic showing that removing the use of glyphosate could threaten crop yields, such as a 30-40% reduction in sugar beets and potatoes.
