Pesticides in maple sap
We have been tapping sugar maples on a property that backs up to an industrial corn and soybean farm. Is it possible and or likely that pesticides used on the farm are absorbed by the tree and found in the sap? We are concerned that if there are trace amounts of harmful chemicals such as glyphosate in the sap, we will be concentrating them during the sugaring process. Thank you for any information you can share regarding this concern.
