Not only lose germ but the residue is traceable if you are talking glysophate.
As Coolio says, if you spray that, it's just feed.

we dessicated all our soft wheat last year with glyphos. Tested the germ in the spring, just for the heck of it. Was surprised how high the germ was.

MAC,

I'm interested if you had the chance to compare roots between the dessicated seed versus an untreated seed. Just a heads up, but just because the seed germinated doesn't necessarily equate to a healthy, vigorous seed.

Very true.
Sometimes seed will die beyond normal seed test interval.
Depends how dry seed was when sprayed.
But for seed it's just too risky.
Had a guy phone me a couple of springs ago, couldn't figure out why he had virtually no emerging peas.
Turns out he got bins mixed up, cleaned and seeded the roundup peas.
Reglone treated peas sat in the bin.
700 acres.
No peas.
