Abstract

Effects on the environment relate to both the biotic and abiotic elements of the ecosystem. Here we will present data on the chemical contamination of the environment as well as data relating to impacts on biological organisms not targeted by the herbicide. This chapter will also present information with regard to herbicide residues on or in HT plants.
