Monsanto-funded study finds that RoundupĀ® creates super weeds

Last November I blogged (blog isn't even a word and now it's a verb?) about the treadmill that Roundup and other agricultural chemicals represent. That is, no matter how slick your latest miracle chemical fix, nature will find a way around it, will evolve, in this case, better weeds to fend off the effects of the new poison.

Now a new study (heavy going unless you're a chemist), ironically funded by Monsanto itself, has confirmed the earlier findings. The Organic Center has translated the findings into English. It all seems to come down to the lesson that it's better to consider nature our friend and find ways to work cooperatively rather than think of nature as the enemy and find better ways to do battle.

Well done! Thank you very much for professional templates and community edition

You mean that Monsanto actually allowed findings contrary to their hype, to see the light of day? I knew that Monsanto was one of the more evil corporations. Then I saw the film, "Food Inc." I now know that Monsanto is a diabolical corporation, the epitome of dangerous anti-environmentalism, of the same caliber as Exxon-Mobil.

Have you heard of a little project called The Bug Crew? We have teams of kids using beneficial insects to fight noxious weeds in Idaho. We started with Camas County and now have Crews in four counties. We have had some mind-blowing successes controlling diffuse and spotted knapweed using a three-insect battle program. No chemicals for us!
