Rob, nice that you put this site on, cool that Ann brought it to your attention. I have bookmarked it to read at a later time, (when will that be), but I read a good part of it......holy smokers!!!
I don't know. Roundup is a herbicide that is used extensively in this world, and must have its place, we all know that, it evidently becomes inert once it hits earth, but what then....I don't believe for minute the soil is not impacted.
Genetically engineered Canola, resistant to roundup.....eeks....I am so stuck on that middle hill about things like this. I am just a small time farmer. But I know that for many years I sprayed roundup everywhere for weed control. Never once thinking about the millions of insects and probably good weeds that I have killed. I could go on and on.....I don't use roundup anymore, nor any kind of herbicide for that matter. It makes my life very very more intricate when it comes to weed control, and weeds must be controlled if you want to have food harvest....period.
I know I ramble and have kind of gone off topic with the issue that this thread is about. Can't help it. That poor soul in Saskatchewan whose acres were contaminated with the seed of this genetically engineered canola surely had a law fight on his hands. Yes, seed blows on the wind...it falls off carriers, the birds bring it in, it comes on the animals feet. Of course this genetically modified crop would be invasive. And then life carries on. Have a great and wonderful day, love our life. Cindi
