The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of glyphosate of organ weights and the protective role of Ascorbic Acid (AA) in male albino Wistar rats. Forty eight (48) rats were randomized into four groups consisting of twelve (12) animals in each: Group 1 served as control, group 2 received glyphosate at a dose of 500 mg/kg b.wt, group 3 received Vitamin C at a dose of 250 mg/kg b.wt and group 4 received glyphosate (500 mg/kg b.wt) and Vitamin C (250 mg/kg b.wt). The treatment regimens were administered by oral gavage once daily for three weeks. Results showed a significant reduction in the absolute weights of testes, liver and kidneys in glyphosate treated groups. However, administration of Vitamin C caused a mild ameliorative effect on the parameters investigated.
