France’s highest court has ruled that US agrochemical giant Monsanto had not told the truth about the safety of its best-selling weed-killer, Roundup. The court confirmed an earlier judgment that Monsanto had falsely advertised its herbicide as “biodegradable” and claimed it “left the soil clean”.
Roundup is the world’s best-selling herbicide. Monsanto also sells crops genetically-engineered to be tolerant to Roundup.
