Glyphosate and manganese
Iowa State is conducting some studies on whether glyphosate ties up manganese or whether glyphosate resistant soybeans are more susceptible to disease.
Research has not been able to pinpoint the relationship yet between glyphosate and manganese in glyphosate resistant crops, but extensive research has revolved around that relationship. Similarly, there may be a relationship between glyphosate and the breakdown of some glyphosate resistant plants to maintain resistance to diseases. So far there has not been a direct connection either found or ruled out.
