If a disused weed filled garden has been nuked with glyphosate,how long
before it can be reinstated as a garden?

Although the glyphosate will kill the growing weeds there will/may still be
viable seeds just waiting for you to start your feeding the ground. Last
time I read a glyphosate bottle it told me that the chemical was neutralised
as soon as it in the dirt and GM crops are modified so that they can be
sprayed with the stuff.

Back from the shed my bottle says 7 day withholding period for edible crops
but that I can plant whenever I like.

Absolute bullshit. I've tried touch weeding selected weeds in a pot and
both plants ended up dying. been reported by others as well.

and GM crops are modified so that
they can be sprayed with the stuff.

The idea is that everything else is nuked.

It just has to survive the glychopospate. Large seed items houlkd have
less problems.

I'd leave it at least a month. Actually, I more likely would wait a
couple of weeks, then plant a green manure crop. Then plant veggies
come spring time. Ground temperature influences greatly how quickly
glyphosate works too, so the colder the season is, the longer it takes
to do it's job. All depends how much you accept their recommendations
I suppose. I'm sceptical to most claims they make regarding it's
safety and 'breaking down' to harmless chemicals.

Just about. That's not to say it isn't still harmful though, just that
as a herbicide it isn't very effective. There has been times I have
been forced to use dirty dam water with glyphosate and found that if
applied within ten minutes, it was still effective. After ten
minutes... didn't do much at all to weeds.

That's what they say, I wouldn't trust that claim for a moment.

I have to agree that a degree of mistrust is prudent. Which is why I read
the labels looking for GM signs and attempt to limit my intake, despite the
assurances that they are harmless.

They may be harmless, but you don't want the GGkids to be armless....

My memory fails me ATM as far as details, but IIRC it was found that
glyphosate *does* break down, but not into 'harmless' constituents,
like they claim (or used to claim).
