Monsanto may have finally gone too far.
Farmers all over the southern U.S. are reporting crop failures because of a new pesticide-resistant seed Monsanto is selling WITHOUT the approval of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Monsanto has been reckless and lawless for years, but this is beyond the pale.
Farmers are filing complaints, but Monsanto is pressuring EPA to approve their new pesticide combinations as soon as possible. We can't let that happen. Will you chip in to help stand up to Monsanto?
Monsanto's latest genetically engineered seeds are marketed to be used with a non-approved pesticide called dicamba -- and now wind-blown dicamba is destroying tens of thousands of acres of crops in Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee.
Monsanto's solution is to try to create a new version of dicamba that won't spread as easily -- while trying to avoid accountability for the damage already done.
And to top it off, scientists say that weeds sprayed with dicamba develop resistance incredibly quickly. So if EPA ever does approve Monsanto’s new genetically engineered seed and pesticide cocktail, Monsanto will have to start creating something new almost immediately.
It's time to hold Monsanto accountable for the damage this pesticide-soaked corporate agriculture is doing -- starting with making Monsanto reimburse the farmers damaged by these unapproved pesticides. Will you chip in today?
