The Roundup Fast Action does contain glyphosate - however I think the blurb is misleading - it says you see results in 1-2 days - you may see some browning/yellowing of the leaves, but the plants will not be dead for a couple of weeks. You have to leave them and wait until they're totally dead before you pull/dig them up.
