A degradacao do glifosato no solo pode seguir duas vias principais: a primeira consiste na transformacao do glifosato em sarcosina por acao da bacteria Agrobacterium radiobacter ou da Enterobacter aeroneges (enzima C-P liase); a segunda rota consiste na transformacao do glifosato em acido aminometilfosfonico (AMPA) sob a acao da bacteria Anthrobacter atrocyaneus e Flavobacterium sp.
