More Coverage

Some generic glyphosate products promote a lower cost per gallon, but they often have a lower Acid Equivalent (A.E.) than Roundup brand herbicides. A.E. is the measure that defines efficacy; the higher the A.E., the better the weed control. So though you might initially pay less for generics with a lower A.E. you’ll likely have to apply them at a higher rate for effective control, which can increase costs and take up more room in the tank.
