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.
