Aggregated information on the distribution of species is drawn from the FIFRA Endangered Species Task Force Information Management System (FESTF IMS).The FESTF IMS draws upon data from: Critical habitat information was obtained from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Critical Habitat Portal (http://crithab.fws.gov).

 

The license agreement between Monsanto and licensees of crops with Roundup Ready® technology requires that licensees observe all mitigation instructions on this Pre-Serve website. The purpose of Pre-Serve is to protect threatened and endangered plant species and their federally-designated critical habitat from potential impacts resulting from the agricultural use of herbicides that contain glyphosate.

In addition to the instructions provided here, mitigations from local, state, or federal protection programs and/or landowner agreements may apply, and must be followed, where applicable. For applications of glyphosate products in California, mitigations specified in the California PRESCRIBE system must also be followed.

When answering the following questions, please consider all applications of glyphosate products you will make this year. If you answer "yes" to any of the following questions, then no mitigation is specified by Pre-Serve:

  1. Will you apply a glyphosate product by ground, only at rates of less than 3.5 pounds glyphosate acid equivalent (a.e.) per acre per application?
    (this is equivalent to 3.1 quarts (100 fl. oz.) per acre of Roundup PowerMAX ® or Roundup WeatherMAX ® Herbicide)
    If yes, you are not impacted by Pre-Serve.
  2. Will you apply a glyphosate product by air, only at rates of less than 0.7 pounds glyphosate acid equivalent (a.e.) per acre per application?
    (this is equivalent to 20 fl. oz. per acre of Roundup PowerMAX or Roundup WeatherMAX Herbicide) 
    If yes, you are not impacted by Pre-Serve.
Otherwise, proceed to Step 1:

† The glyphosate a.e. values given here are based on Monsanto’s evaluation of the available data. Always read and follow all label instructions. If applying a glyphosate product from another manufacturer, review the product label to determine the volume that provides the same glyphosate a.e. rate per acre. ® Roundup, Roundup Ready, Roundup PowerMAX, and Roundup WeatherMAX are registered trademarks of Monsanto Technology LLC.
