Louisiana Glyphosate Plant Resumes Production

Bayer’s glyphosate plant in Luling, Louisiana is back up and running. The facility was hit by Hurricane Ida and went offline on August 28. A Bayer spokesperson told the Red River Farm Network, the site has resumed full operations ahead of schedule and is expected to be at full production rates in the coming weeks. With the Louisiana site being the largest glyphosate plant in the United States, the shutdown further complicated the supply situation. The Bayer official said glyphosate demand is high and filling that demand is the company’s top priority.
