The sky can slow down from falling.

LONDON (Reuters) - A large long-term study on the use of the big-selling weedkiller glyphosate by agricultural workers in the United States has found no firm link between exposure to the pesticide and cancer, scientists said on Thursday.

""Published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI), the study found there was no association between glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's popular herbicide RoundUp, "and any solid tumors or lymphoid malignancies overall, including non-Hogkin Lymphoma (NHL) and its subtype""

best broad leaf weed killing cocktail for backpack sprayer (4 gallon): generic glyphosphate (Honcho) 6oz., Low-bio Urea prilled 1lb. Take the urea and make a slurry to dissolve it, add the glyphosphate and fill the backpack. The best time to use this is right after a rain or irrigation where the weed is growing vigorously.

Urea is a source of nitrogen...

OK what is the benefits of adding nitrogen to round up?, does it help the vegetation absorb it faster?

For some reason I was thinking along the lines of polyurea .....:)

Round up essentially acts like a real strong dose of fertilizer that kills the plant as it absorbs it. The urea exacerbates the effect. A double whammy so to speak. Citrus orchards use the urea spray on thier trees to harden them off over winter.

Would it also exacerbate the effect of Crossbow ?

No. Roundup kills everything so does too much biuret. Cross bow is selective to broad leaf via the 2-4-D. If you add biuret it will kill everything.
