This work aimed to evaluate the influence of cotton plant treatment using reduced rates of glyphosate, simulating drift, on the quality of the seeds produced. The plants of the ITA-90 and BRS-Facual cultivars were treated at two different development stages (4 and 10 leaves) with glyphosate in the doses of 0; 180 and 360 g ha-1 ea. Cotton crop yield was evaluated. The material was seeded and seed quality evaluated, through mass of 100 seeds, emergence percentage and mass of plantules. There was a reduction in cotton production in the treatments, except in older plants treated with 180 g ha-1. No significant difference in plantule emergence was found in the different treatments.
