Widespread Damage from Dicamba Drives a Deep Wedge Between Farmers

Dicamba use in the U.S. has increased with GE dicamba-resistant crops, with a corresponding increase in damage to non-target plants. This is driving a deep wedge those farmers who use dicamba and those who don’t. […]

Herbicides Increase Antibiotic Resistance Evolution in Bacteria

Commonly used herbicides such as glyphosate and dicamba, also widely used with GM herbicide-resistant crops, can cause bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance by a factor of up to 100,000 times faster than occurs without the herbicide. […]

What Keeps GM Herbicide-Centric Agriculture in Place?

Weed control in the U.S. Midwest has become increasingly herbicide-centric due to the adoption of GM herbicide-tolerant crops.This study describes factors that hinder the movement away from the use of herbicide-tolerant technology towards integrated weed. […]

Glyphosate Shown to Increase Honeybee Susceptibility to Infections

A new study has shown that glyphosate, widely used with GM herbicide-resistant crops, damages the good bacteria in honeybee guts, making them more prone to deadly infections. […]

Damage from Dicamba Drift Grows Across the U.S.

Damage to crops from dicamba drift from GE dicamba-tolerant soybean fields in the US cover at least 10 states with state regulators struggling to keep up with the pace of complaints. […]

Dicamba Drift Threatens Natural Habitats and Species Across the US

Dicamba drift from the spraying of the herbicide in dicamba-tolerant GM soy farms in the US threatens natural habitats, putting endangered species of plants and animals at risk. […]

Toxic Formulants and Heavy Metals in Glyphosate-based Herbicides

Formulations of glyphosate-based herbicides are found to be much more toxic on both plants and human cells than glyphosate alone. Toxic heavy metals such as arsenic are also found in these herbicides. […]

Health Impacts of Glyphosate May Include Driving Antibiotic Resistance

Glyphosate resistant crops have led to intensification of glyphosate use, emergence of glyphosate-resistant weeds and microorganisms, changes in microbiomes and disease resistance, deteriorated plant and animal health, and increased antibiotic resistance. […]

Human Exposure to Glyphosate Increased 500 percent Since GM Crop Introduction in the US

A study has found that human exposure to glyphosate through foods has increased approximately 500% over 23 years since the introduction of GM glyphosate-tolerant crops in the US. […]

Glyphosate-Resistant Weeds A Growing Major Problem Worldwide

The overuse of glyphosate has led to a global situation where glyphosate-resistant weeds are spreading rapidly. The worst infestations and greatest economic impact are seen in countries growing GM glyphosate-resistant crops. […]
