    What is crop dessication, it means they spray the crop with huge ammount of herbicide right before harvest to kill of everything, including the crop and to make the green part of the field mature. You get a evenly matured crop in that way.

    The favourite pesticide is glyphosate. In a study of glyphosate in european urine they found it all over Europe

    Especially high in it are seed oil, the can legally have up to 40ppm, thats a huge ammount. This are glyphosate residues in UK food in 2011

    Scary stuff this dessication.
