A number of glyphosate-focussed stories have appeared in the media recentkly. Most of these articles fail to reference that agricultural chemicals, including glyphosate, are some of the most regulated products in the world. The world’s most sophisticated, advanced, independent and scientifically-competent regulators have assessed and reassessed glyphosate and declared it to be safe.
Decisions by juries in civil litigation cases in the United States that disregard science do not undermine the independent scientific evidence regarding glyphosate safety and must not be allowed to warp public policy or regulatory decisions on agricultural chemistry.
The Newsroom provides links to interesting articles on issues relevant to the plant science industry.
