A: In some cases, crops have been genetically modified to metabolize a herbicide so that the crop, which would otherwise be injured by the herbicide, is now tolerant, thereby providing new weed-management technology to aid in efficient crop production. In these instances, residue levels of the herbicide in crop commodities at the time of harvest are likely to be nondetectable, or, if detected, are likely to be present at only trace levels. It is possible that while the parent... Continue Reading
