  • Crops genetically engineered to be glufosinate (herbicide) resistant may produce intestinal herbicide with known toxic effects.

    Potential Health Hazards of Genetically Engineered Foods

  • About 71% of the crops are engineered to resist herbicide, including Liberty (glufosinate ammonium) and Roundup (glyphosate).

    The ABC's of GMO's

  • An extremely positive attribute to the herbicides glyphosate and glufosinate - used in a Roundup Ready or LibertyLink weed control system, respectively - is that both can exhibit excellent activity on weed species larger in size than what is recommended for optimum activity on individual labels ....

  • However, the tolerance to glufosinate ammonium herbicides provided by the gene in WideStrike is not equivalent to the glufosinate ammonium herbicide tolerance of LibertyLink cotton, according to Dow.

  • Dow has acknowledged it saying the gene which confers a level of tolerance to glufosinate ammonium herbicides is the selectable marker in WideStrike cotton varieties.

  • Researchers report, however, it is not uncommon to see 10 to 20 percent and maybe as high as 30 percent injury from the use of glufosinate ammonium on Phytogen WideStrike cotton varieties.

  • Some growers also learned in Tulare that 755 WRF has another transgenic attribute, resistance to another herbicide, glufosinate, marketed under the trade name Ignite by Bayer CropScience.

  • Of the 406 plants collected, 347 (86%) tested positive for CP4 EPSPS protein (confers tolerance to glyphosate herbicide) or PAT protein (confers tolerance to glufosinate herbicide).
