    What do you suggest instead? I dislike the use of herbicide rsistant crops to help push herbicide sales0--and end up with super-herbicide resistant weeds when those crops try to crow where they are not welcome.--but what is the alternative?

    Not knowing how big an area you have, hard to recommend. For smaller gardens, weed them with a hoe or by hand. If we don't stop Monsanto soon, they will control the whole food chain.

    Isn't there something in the constitution about the federal government being able to declare a patent important to national defense and buy the patent for $25,000. That would be several million dollars correcting for inflation since 1789. The nation's farmers do need to defend crop land from weeds. I fear that Round Up Ready is turning out to be counterproductive for defending cropland from weeds--like feral Round Up Ready canola.
