The glyphosate in PondMaster® Surface & Shoreline is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide and crop desiccant used to kill weeds, particularly annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops. In March 2015, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic” after completing a year-long study on the herbicide and its potential health effects. A summary of the study was published in The Lancet Oncology.
