Apparent synergy between glyphosate application and Fusarium and other
This page is devoted to ongoing research from the early 1980's that
shows a relationship between the application of glyphosate and the
resultant growth of Fusarium and other toxic fungi in various media.
Taken as a whole, these papers indicate that Fusarium and other toxic
fungi can be stimulated in soils as a result of glyphosate
applications. These toxic molds could then parasitize crops,
producing noticeably lower yields and contaminate the soils that they
are grown on with mycotoxins-not so much as a direct effect of
glyphosate, but by the secondary effects of an glyphosate-stimulated
growth of mycotoxin-producing Fusaria and other toxic molds.
