The problem seems, among other things, to be politcally motivated and profit driven.
A little common sense needs to be applied here, and a lot of technology.
Crop ratation comes to mind, but then, there goes part of the profit...
New pesticides can and will be developed, but I doubt that absent a spitit of community that will be done in a hurry.
Good luck with all that.......

Crop ratation, isn't that when the Rats are passing the Superweed joint from one rat to another?

Weeds look great...no more mowing the grass! Nature is really beautiful and should be left alone so that it can grow. Has anyone ever looked at field with nothing but 'weeds'...they do bloom just like flowers.

As for the crop rotation...fine but the pesticides have already settled into the earth by years of use and no matter what crop you plant the chemicals are going to be in the 'end' product.

The most logical course might be to develop some of those superweeds into a new source for ethanol instead of using our precious food supply of corn.

absolutly increadible. Get the bee's to pollinate for a better crop.
Oh yea there all dead too.
Shame. I had a party planned.
Does "Monsanto" cater to the poor or will they require a wholesale tax ID?
