Sept 2017: Weeds becoming resistant to Roundup, Monsanto now has dicamba

Monsanto’s New Weed Killer, Dicamba, Divides Farmers NYT Sept 2017

The replacement may be worse than Roundup in many ways

  1. More expensive
  2. Damages trees in addition to killing weeds
  3. Drifts farther
    "Because genetically modified crops allow dicamba to be sprayed later in the year, after crops emerge from the ground, and in hotter and more humid weather, the chemical is susceptible to what is known as “volatility” — it can turn into a gas and drift onto whatever happens to be nearby."
  4. Health problems?
    "“For both dicamba and 2,4-D, the reproductive risks and birth defects” are “most worrisome.”

Update - Monsanto rewards farmers who use DiCamba Dec 2017

Farmers have been reluctant to use DiCamba (problems on own farm, neighboring farm, and state)
Monsanto now giving $5/acre reward if a farmer uses it (it costs $11/acre)

The farmers there are spraying it around the root structure to try and keep weeds from competing for things like moisture and nutrients. The science on that I have read … is more the impact on the soil because glyphosate kills the beneficial microbes in the soil that help the plant to remain healthy. So, when you’re killing those beneficial microbes in the soil, the plant is more susceptible to disease, or perhaps needs more fertilizer,"
