Glyphosate was in short supply in 2021 and after the recent announcement from Bayer on a possible shortage due to mechanical issues, growers will feel an even tighter squeeze in 2022. Bayer shared with Farm Journal that as of Monday, it had 80% of its Roundup supplies in house. According to data from the Farm Journal Supply Chain Survey, 90% of farmers say they use glyphosate for their herbicide needs. It was also reported that 57% of farmers say they had trouble sourcing inputs for this growing season.
Bayer has not quantified how much of an impact the mechanical event will have on overall production.
