Is glyphosate safe?
Last year I treated an area of bindweed with glyphosate - the nexy day I found a perfectly normal looking young blackbird, no wounds or signs of illness, dead about half metre away. Could the glyphosate have killed it?
Secondly, a gardener I know told me that glyphosate can leach from the roots of the target plant and kill others whose roots are nearby in the soil. Does anyone know if there is any truth in this?
