Glyphosate used on 90% of US soybean crop

Glyphosate herbicide was applied to nearly 90% of the US soybean acreage last year, according to a survey by the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). Some 70.8 million lbs (32,130 tonnes) of the potassium salt of glyphosate were applied to 59% of the area and 29.6 million lbs of the isopropylamine salt were applied to 30% of the crop. The NASS conducted the survey in 19 states, which accounted for 96% of the US soybean acreage. The Service’s last survey of pesticide use on soybeans in 2005 found that some 67 million pounds of glyphosate was applied to 93% of the crop (Agrow No 496, p 10).
