Glyphosate Herbicide Drift - Identification Photos

Glyphosate Herbicide drift on a grapevine shoot tip.
Physical drift is a risk with Glyphosate based herbicides as this photo shows - above. This vineyard was sprayed 6 weeks ago and unfortunately a small amount of drift has affected some shoots. Glyphosate can drift in windy conditions and, because it is systemic, can translocate within grapevines.
