    Some important work – – – but g. m. crops being PROMOTED is pretty frightening!
    Round Up is essentially the same as the same as the agent orange we dumped on Viet Nam. With so many people needing work – weeds can actually be pulled (Wait till the ground is wet and weeds are a little bigger – they pop right out!
    I’ve done it myself over several acres.) Poison on food crops still get into the food chain, the environment — Biodiversity as nature intended is the way to go – NOT mono-cropping as Monsanto etc. promote.

    Is Brown being paid by the corporations ? Monsanto?
    I have spent ten years in India. I suggest you go back and look very carefully at this issue.
