Caught in the Glyphstream?

So, wheat coming to harvest in a less than scorching climate ie where there is moisture and continued leaf growth. In such zones, why dont you Glyph your problems away – US and EU guidelines say “Go for it, glyph away……”

Thus:

“Use to ripen crop Glyphosate does not have true desiccant properties. It disrupts the shikimic acid pathway through inhibition of the 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSP) enzyme. The resulting deficiency in EPSP production leads to reductions in aromatic amino acids vital for protein synthesis and plant growth (Tomlin 2006; Vencill, 2002). Glyphosate is absorbed by the leaves and stems of plants and is translocated throughout the plant (Roberts 1998) concentrating in meristem tissue (Franz et al, 1997). Translocation into the grain does not occur if treatment is delayed until seed heads or pods are almost ripe (i.e. bulk sample less than 30% moisture).”

From an EU type pdf:

[This post will expand, as I assemble my Glyph stance. I bear in mind Marty’s US stuff and the physiological impacts not dreamed of in above, clear-all pdf.]
