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.

"Summary:
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.
