In several north western European countries glyphosate can be applied before crop harvest for weed control, to enhance ripening on non-determinate crops to reduce crop losses, and to help manage determinate crops in wet seasons. Different countries have different recommendations for crops but the common factor is that the bulk grain sample must have dried to a maximum of 30% moisture content. At this point it is physiologically mature and the grain is filled, so glyphosate will not be translocated into the grain from the plant. Growers are recommended to use the lowest appropriate recommended dose for their target use.

The money is allocated and will be awarded. I don't know about getting a non-profit organization together but it can't be impossible because there are thousands out there. If I knew how, I would do it. Maybe I'll look into it. I have friends that would also help.
