Behaviour of glufosinate-ammonium in the environment - degradation and effect on the ecosystem

Zeitschrift fur Pflanzenkrankheiten und Pflanzenschutz (Sonderheft 13): 459-468
Behaviour of glufosinate-ammonium in the environment - degradation and effect on the ecosystem
Studies with lufosinate-ammonium showed that the compound was rapidly and completely broken down in both soil and water. The most important metabolites were Hoe 061517 (3-methylphosphinico-acetic acid) and Hoe 064619 (2-methylphosphinico-acetic acid). No percolation of glufosinate-ammonium into the groundwater was evident.
