How much Roundup needed to kill lawn weeds?


the evel things are:
monsanto engineered genetically modified crops which is resistant only to their chemicals. Both are mutually engineered. The problem is, that these chemicals also kill these same crops but not chemically engineered.
Thru natural spread the genetically engineered corn for example can be found in fields where no one ever bought originally these crops.
Since these crops enjoy patents, farmers that have these crops on their land thru natural spread are being sued by Monsanto (overseas and also in the US). So this is not just some eco movement issue.

False.

No random farmer has "just been sued" by Monsanto. The farmers that have tried to resell RoundUp Ready Seed - which they signed a contract to NOT do - have been sued by RoundUp.

Please try again.

How much Roundup needed to kill lawn weeds?


hello,
I have gone thru my movies and the move on monsanto is called
'world according to monsanto'.

it shows how monsanto moved from a chemical company into the biological engineering. It also shows the close ties to USDA (they talk about revolving door) in which former monsanto employees work fro USDA and vice versa, then a few farmers comes up, one of which is called Troy Rush from Indiana and shows my previous statements on transgenic contamination. It is a very interesting movie and not mainstream but not some eco, please know that I am in principle a hardwood logger so no greenpeace type of guy, but I prefer to hear information from all possible angles and this movie really makes a point.

I too read and study a wide variety of sources.

That said, I can assure you that "The World According To Monsanto" is a film that was written and produced by a person (Marie Monique Robin) who is an extremist with an agenda. It is not so much a documentary as it is propaganda.

if facts are facts and not lies, then it is to be classified as a documentary and not so much as propaganda. I think the monsanto website is then to be classified as propagando too?

Anyhow, I prefer myself more competitors, the more the better, talking as a citizen and a consumer, instead of a few powerfull players that control too much like monsanto, wallmart etc.
Ofcourse, as a hardwood supplier, I would also like to be the only one with all the competitors vanished and consumers waiting on my lips..
