Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


The aim of the project is to examine potential effects when farm animals are exposed to glyphosate residues via the feed. The project examines the effect of glyphosate on the gastrointestinal microorganisms and on the mineral status in pigs and poultry as well as possible secondary effects on the animals’ health and productivity. The studies will be conducted both at the research facilities at Aarhus University Foulum as well as in a number of commercial herds. The studies will be carried out with newly weaned piglets and laying hens.
