Roundup hit by supplier problems

Roundup may be temporarily in short supply, the manufacturer, Bayer AG, has said in a letter to customers.

It’s because its supplier of membrane caustic soda has had a mechanical failure at its plant.

This issue arises at a time when global suppliers of many pesticides are in short supply.

"Our supplier is on track to restore production, (and) we’ve sourced additional materials and made other mitigation efforts to help best manage this situation," the company said in a statement.

Bayer has not identified the supplier.
