Glyphosate and AMPA determinations in rapeseed extracts by (a) liquid chromatography with triple quadrupole MS detection (LC-MS/MS), or (b) liquid chromatography with post-column OPA derivatization and fluorescence detection (LC-FLD) were developed. Mean recoveries for glyphosate and AMPA were (a) 88.8–95.0% and 82.1–86.1%, and (b) 70.8–74.1% and 62.4–72.6%. RSD were below (a) 11% and (b) 22%. Correlation coefficients were above 0.997 for both methods. LOD were 0.01 mg kg-1 for (a) and 0.05 mg kg-1 for (b). Both methods are simple and efficient for routine analysis of glyphosate and AMPA in a fatty matrix.
