BACKGROUND The current climate change scenario may affect the water availability of the soil, impacting the agricultural sector. Thus, the planting of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.), due to its potential for cultivation under drought during the off-season in Brazil, has increased, mainly due to its high potential for biofuel production. There are several reports about the potential of low doses of glyphosate to promote plant growth and development (hormesis). Despite the concept of…

Control of Ipomoea grandifolia and antioxidant enzyme activity with bentazon and glyphosate at times and soil water conditions

Weed management with herbicides requires favorable environmental conditions, that maximize efficiency, such as soil humidity and timing of application. The aim of this study was to assess the effect

Agronomic Performance of RR® Soybean Submitted to Glyphosate Application Associated with a Product Based on Bacillus subtilis

Despite the great benefits arising from the adoption of Roundup Ready® (RR®) soybean, there are reports about the lack of selectivity of glyphosate for this crop. The use of growth-promoting

Its effects on non-target plant species are generally less than that of many other herbicides, as it is not volatile and is generally sprayed in larger droplet sizes with a relatively low propensity to drift and is inactivated by tight binding to most soils.



The impact of water regimes on hormesis by glyphosate on common bean

Hydric conditions during the crop cycle of the common bean have a great influence on the results of hormesis by glyphosate, and in the presence of low glyphosate doses, the commonbean demonstrated greater tolerance to hydric stress.


It was shown that the effects of this herbicide were intensified from the third day after application, showing that even with a high level of resistance the herbicide can affect its metabolism.

Can low doses of glyphosate stimulate common bean growth?

It is indicated that growth characteristics of early cycle common bean are stimulated by low doses of glyphosate, but this response is dependent on the growing environment.
