Soil microorganisms are highly exposed to glyphosate-based herbicides like Roundup, which is widely used worldwide. This article evaluates the toxicity of a commercial formulation of Roundup on the fungus Aspergillus nidulans. The lethal dose it took to kill Aspergillus nidulans was 1/100th TIMES LOWER than that used in agriculture.

Here’s the article in full published in Environmental Science Pollution Research, courtesy of Russian science-activists who believe scientific findings should be made free to the public.
