Robert Kremer, Ph.D.: Glyphosate and Transgenic Crops and their Impact on Soil Biology and Ecology and the Environment

Robert Kremer


Current conventional crop production relies heavily on transgenic, glyphosate-resistant cultivars. The presenter will discuss the impacts of glyphosate on soil biology as well as our environment as a whole. Field studies conducted looked at the effects of glyphosate applied to tolerant soybeans and corn in terms of root colonization and soil populations of Fusarium and selected rhizosphere bacteria. In this session he will discuss the science — and farm-level implications — of this chemical in terms of interactions and direct and indirect effects.
