SALGADO, T.P et al. Initial symptoms of Eucalyptus intoxication by glyphosate rates applied on the stem or leaves. Planta daninha [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.4, pp. 913-922. ISSN 0100-8358.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-83582011000400022.

This work was carried out to evaluate intoxication symptoms caused by glyphosate application. It was constituted by four assays with glyphosate applications (360 g a.e. L-1) on eucalyptus. In all assays, seedlings were transplanted into 5.OL plastic pots. In assays 1 and 2, increasing herbicide volumes were applied on the stem. In the first one, a glyphosate solution of 3% (v/v) was applied at the volumes 0, 1, 5, 10, 20, 40, 80 and 160 µL solution per plant, and in the second, glyphosate solution of 2% (v/v) was applied at volumes 0, 1, 5, 15, 30, 60, 90, 120 and 150 µL solution per plant. In assays 3 and 4, glyphosate was sprayed on the plants. The rates in the third assay were: 0, 7.2 10-7, 7.2 10-6, 7.2 10-5, 7.2 10-4, 7.2 10-3, 7.2 10-2, 7.2 10-1, 7.2, 72, 360 and 720 g a.e. of glyphosate ha 1, and in the fourth assay, the rates were: 0, 9, 18, 36, 72, 144, 288, 432, 576, 720, 1.080, 1.440 and 2.160 g a.e. of glyphosate ha-1. All assays were arranged in a randomized design, with three replications. Height, leaf area, and dry mass of the leaves and stem were evaluated in the plants and the results were submitted to regression analysis. When applied on the stem, doses of 40.78 and 51.41 µL per plant of glyphosate solution, 3 and 2% (v/v), respectively, were sufficient to reduce eucalyptus development in 50%. When applied on the plants, more developed plants showed greater sensitivity.Rates of 277.4 and 143.3 g a.e. ha-1 reduced eucalyptus growth in 50%, in assays 3 and 4, respectively.
