That may be true, but the Monsanto seed is GMO, so it will not reproduce.
It is essentially worthless, or worse!

Yes, plants can and do develop resistance to herbicides just as insects can against pesticides. Another example of this is in South American with the DEA spraying of coca crops. After initial success the plants have bounced back stronger and hardier, yielding more, and immune to the DEA herbicides.

I'm not surprised at this at all.

Seriously, I'm against the government meddling the real free market... which don't exist anyway... but, for earth's sake, TAKE DOWN MONSANTO and BAN THEIR CROPS.

They already killed enough people like that. In India people kill themselves because of those crops not working, they are toxic, they kill bees, they alter our DNA, they destroy natural cultures... ect... there's tons of reasons to destroy this corporation.

But of course Obama won't do squat about it, Monsanto praticaly own the FDA and HR875 is banning homegrown gardens. Obama never talked about labelling GMO products and never talked about going against Monsanto...

And the worst of it, the ecologists, if we can call them that... even if they are just global warming, let's tax everybody nuts, are not campaigning about GMO crops 1/10000 of what time they are spending on global warming, even if GMO are already killing people and destroying earth.

At least NATURE knows what's good for her. If fake ecologists would listen to the earth, they would really know what to fight against.
