(The World's Most Controversial Weed killer) is used to dry out crops just before harvest. This is called desiccation or pre-harvest spraying. It is one of the main reasons for glyphosate ending up in the food you eat.  Pre-harvest spraying is used on oats, wheat, barley and many pulses on both conventional and GMO crops
