The Absence of Glyphosate Residues in Wet Soil and the Adjacent Watercourse after a Forestry Application in New Brunswick
A successful ground application of glyphosate for competition control was made on an 11-ha site planted with white spruce. During the application, monitoring was conducted of the buffer-protected stream before treatment and intensively after treatment. No herbicide was found in the adjacent waters. In addition, samples were taken of water-saturated soil at several locations on the site, frozen, and analyzed for glyphosate. Under the application and weather conditions that prevailed, no glyphosate was detected 24 hours after treatment with a trace amount detected in one replicate sample after 1 year. Warm temperatures at the time of and in the season before the application are thought to explain the fast degradation rate in the water-saturated soil samples.
