Abstract

Glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine) herbicide has been extensively used on several herbicide tolerant crops in the United States since the introduction of the first commercially available genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] seed in 1996. The launch of commercially available glyphosate-tolerant corn (Zea mays L.) seed in 1998 provided farmers in Iowa and other states, where corn and soybean are primarily grown, the ability to apply glyphosate to every acre of these crops annually.
