Re: correlation of glysophate use with disease: 12 charts

My, stooping so low to the incidence chart thing ? Incidence charts aren't any sort of proof and to use them to try to twist unrelated information is really a new low for the anti people. Maybe they...

Re: Widespread Glyphosate Contamination in the US

This is such a poorly supported claim, even Snopes blows it out of the water.

Re: French Farmers Grow Angry

Well, it's a waste of food, and the cost of the labor/time/resources to grow that wasted food.

Re: GMO ban passed in Maoui County, HA

Hope they have lots of money to defend that law. And to pay for all the people going to be out of work, what is the number? About 800 total will be out of work? Hard times for the economy there.

Re: Syngenta Destroys US Corn Sales to China

Agree with every point you made- it is nothing short of stupidity to holdthe seed company liable for seed mixing post harvest.

Re: non-GMO seed costs less tha GMO for large quantity production

Good article- the farmer is following his thoughts on the bottom line and using good sense, in several ways.

I do dislike the first farmer spraying unneeded chemicals, though, because ( as he...

Re: Never kill a black snake

Oh, javalinas would eat some snakes, small ones possibly- but they are not an animal one wants around.

They aren't pigs, but are maybe more dangerous than wild hogs are and very dangerous to...

Re: okra need advice

Joseph, grilled okra is also very good, as is the standard gumbos. We use very small pods for most everything, even for pickling ( great with garlic hot pepper dill mix).

Re: Myth: GM farmers “drown” crops in “dangerous” glyphosate.

Way of topic, let's move back to the matter at hand in this topic, please.

Amounts and where/how used are important when using chemicals, "organic" or not.
