Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
Ian, as a wanna-be very small farmer, I go to all the seminars on farming that the local or semi-local extension agents put on, (but the best ones are in Baldwin County, AL, about 90 miles from here. They serve a free lunch, too.) The last one I went to there, which was about vegetable production, the agents were complaining bitterly about RoundUp resistant pigweed-- it was becoming such a problem that farmers were using excessive amounts of RoundUp, and the problem was, of course, getting even worse, with other weeds developing resistance.
