All indication is there are now GMO crops that are resistant to the main chemical in agent orange and it's close relatives.
They can't just go out and say "We have agent orange resistant crops!" That of course would be bad for marketing.
If approved, farmers would be able to plant the new seeds while spraying fields with 2,4-D throughout the life of the crops,

Yep with industrial farming in Great Britain since 1940 the quality of the soil has declined markedly resulting in a disastrous drop of minerals in the foods eaten the iron content from 15 different meats is down 47 percent,streaky bacon has lost 87 per cent calcium and 78 per cent iron,the iron content of milk is down 62 percent and magnesium down 21 per cent,selenium,potassium,phosphorus all down.
This is why we have all these allergies there is no nutrition in food.
It does not have to be this way restored organic fields yield 90-100 per cent of conventional crops.
There are 100 000 synthetic chemicals on the market today of these only 140 have been tested in the last decade so who knows if the other 99860 are safe....what the hell are the regulators regulating?
(these facts are available in 'The Big Earth Book by James Bruges-a worthwhile read)
