  Hot Discussion

Is There a Safe Alternative to Glyphosate?


    Jim Ossman:

    "No. But alternatives like Paraquat represent a much higher risk to handlers. The real alternative is gmo crops resistant to a multitude of herbicides. But none represent lesser risk than glyphosate. This was a calculated political play from the beginning. Take down the least hazardous product, the rest will fall like dominoes. I'm guessing that's what was said in the Greenpeace boardroom discussion group many years ago. "

    Laurent Dartouh:

    "Belchim Crop Protection just launched Katoun Gold, it's a natural herbicide that guarantees to be an effective alternative to glyphosate , for the management of vegetable coverage in urban areas and roads in Portugal. It is a product that does not have persistence in the soil, degrading very quickly without toxicological classification. It is a reference product in France and other countries."

    Judi Graff:

    "Pulling weeds by hand."
