Cultivation of glyphosate-resistant sugar beets can impact both agricultural practice and biodiversity. Increased use of glyphosate favors the evolution of glyphosate-resistant weeds. To control them more herbicides will be applied. Glyphosate-based herbicides show negative effects on soil and aquatic organisms and plant health. The broad spectrum herbicide glyphosate reduces diversity and abundance of wild plants in fields and on field margins significantly which in turn leads to reduction of fauna relying on these wild plants for food and shelter. Negative impacts on biodiversity are likely.
