This week's session: Glyphosate in current crop protection presented by Joe Lawrence (Cornell PRODAIRY) and Jeff Miller (CCE Oneida County)
The BEE Soil & Water Seminar Series for Spring 2019 meets Fridays 2:30-3:20 from February 22 through April 19.
Seminar Series Overview Due to the development and predominance of transgenic glyphosate-tolerant crops such as corn and soybeans, the use of glyphosate-based herbicides has increased markedly in recent years. As a result, glyphosate is now one of the most heavily-used active ingredients. Its direct toxicity to non-target organisms is regarded as very low, and post-application immobilization and degradation are rapid. However, recent research has found widespread – albeit low-level – detections in the environment in agricultural areas, while others suggest the potential for non-target adverse impacts. We look forward to an open, research-based discussion from many disciplinary perspectives on reassessing the potential transport and impacts of glyphosate-based herbicides and their associated adjuvants and degradation products
