Glyphosate application resulted in a decline in soil pH with consequent increase in soil mycoflora suggesting an indirect relationship. Though the composition of mycoflora unchanged, species of aspergilli, fusaria, penicillia and Trichoderma were predominant. HPLC, IR analysis revealed the presence of sarcosine derivative as an intermediary of glyphosate degradation in soil.
