"The Texas Department of Agriculture asked the EPA last month for an exemption to permit growers to douse fields this summer with propazine—a chemical little-used in U.S. agriculture—to control an invasive plant known as palmer amaranth, or pigweed."


Wonder if this stuff is made by the evil Monsanto?

I wonder if the Pigweed is edible?

Yes, it is edible. Can't say it would be my first choice on the menu, but I would choose it over Monsanto corn.
