Natural Society reported just weeks ago that Texas farmers wanted to pour an unlicensed herbicide all over 3 million acres of genetically modified cotton in an ‘emergency’ attempt to stop the forward advance of superweeds taking over the farmer’s fields. In a surprising turn of events, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has denied an emergency request to use toxic propazine to kill the resistant superweeds, for once supporting sustainable farming practices, and not biotech genocide.
GM manufacturers clearly promote the use of their products, but they are increasingly finding it difficult to continue lying to farmers and consumers about the efficacy of their toxic chemicals and GM seed. Farmers around the world have already been warned that the GM-biotech model was causing superweeds – this news has been around for years – so there is no way that an ‘emergency’ situation to use yet another poison should be allowed.
