Superweeds Are Winning The Battle Against Farmers

Superweeds will now face a stronger chemical pesticide in an effort to curtail the ongoing problem of the massive, difficult to kill, and unwanted growth. The EPA recently approved a new chemical pesticide, against the objections of many environmentalists and organic farmers. Enlist Duo is a mix of glyphosate and an herbicide called 2,4-D and was created by Dow AgroScience.

Farmers who use Enlist Duo will effectively be doubling the amount of chemicals poured onto the land and carried via wind, rain, birds, and bees, onto crops and into the water supply.
