This is the English version of an extensive report examining glyphosate use and alternatives in French agriculture, published by INRA, France’s National Institute for Agricultural Research in November 2017. The report was drawn up in response to a request from the French government “for an analysis of glyphosate use, the identification of possible alternatives alongside their economic and organisational implications, and suggestions for supporting measures to facilitate the transition to glyphosate-free production systems”.

The report brought together experts from a number of French institutes, including INRA’s fellow French ENDURE partners ACTA and CIRAD, in addition to Chambers of Agriculture and professional agricultural organisations, and exploited data from France’s DEPHY farms network, national and international reports, and scientific and technical publications.
