From: Review of GMO safety assessment studies: glyphosate residues in Roundup Ready crops is an ignored issue

Fig. 1

Recent data on glyphosate residues in glyphosate tolerant soybean. Data from analysis of samples from fields in Iowa, USA [30] and province of Salta, Argentina [65]. Residues are shown as detections of glyphosate and the primary metabolite, AMPA. Reference lines indicate maximum residue limit (MRL). Former European MRL of 0.1 mg/kg was raised 200-fold in 1999 to 20 mg/kg. US MRL at 20 mg/kg was raised to 40 mg/kg in 2014. Codex Alimentarius MRL for soybean is 20 mg/kg [90]
