The Touchdown PRO glyphosate molecule represents an innovative active ingredient that’s different from other glyphosate products in that it is a diammonium salt. While other glyphosate products may injure the cells used in herbicide translocation, inhibiting active ingredient from moving systemically, Touchdown PRO herbicide’s active ingredient leaves cells intact. It works by interrupting the production of key chemicals within the plant by transforming the shape of the EPSP receptor site. As a
result, photosynthesis slows, chlorophyll degrades, auxins decline, and plastids burst.
