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.
