Glyphosate problems in the rootzone: Current research at Hohenheim University in Stuttgart, Germany by Gunter Neumann and his research team, summary paper titled "Relevance of glyphosate transfer to non-target plants via the rhizosphere". This explains a common problem we see in Adelaide gardens of roses with almost white leaves, likely caused by glyphosate in the rootzone causing soil sterility and absence of nutrient uptake. The jury is still out on a remedy, but increasing soil micro-organisms might be a start. Try worm by products, activated carbon and compost, then water soluble nutrients. click to download Adobe PDF file
