Research Project: Determination of the Effect of Glyphosate on Mineral Content of Glyphosate-Resistant Crops

Location: Natural Products Utilization Research

Project Number: 6060-21410-010-02
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 15, 2012
End Date: Jan 30, 2015

Objective:
Determine the effect of glyphosate on mineral content of glyphosate-resistant corn and soybeans.

Approach:
Inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) will be used to determine the content of up to 20 minerals in plant tissues and seeds of glyphosate-treated and untreated glyphosate-resisant crops from field studies in Maryland, Mississippi, and Illinois.
