Summary

The herbicide, N-phosphonomethyl glycine (glyphosate), is readily absorbed by the foliage and translocated in the phloem of Agropyron repent (L.) Beauv. The roots and rhizomes were active sinks and, 8 days following herbicide treatment, 14C accumulated at the rhizome nodes, especially at the apical buds. Appreciable amounts of [14C]glyphosate were exuded from intact roots into surrounding solutions but very low levels occurred in the guttation drops collected from the leaf tips. Some implications of the work are discussed.
