Such crops significantly reduce the need to spray pesticides, irrigate fields or use mechanical cultivating to control weeds. It is a foundation of biotech agriculture and reduced soil erosion.
Now that hundreds of studies, millions of people and trillions of servings with at least one GMO ingredient have proven that GMO products are safe, Greenpeace and other radical anti-technology groups have gone after glyphosate, as their substitute villain. They’ve also enlisted still more collusion, corruption and deceit in the service of what Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore calls their anti-chemical, anti-science, anti-people campaigns. ~ Paul Driessen
