Researchers accuse German authority of plagiarism in glyphosate review

EU regulators based a decision to relicense the controversial weedkiller glyphosate on an assessment plagiarised from industry reports.

The study’s findings have been released hours before a parliamentary vote on tightening independent scrutiny of the pesticides approvals process.
