Monsanto offers cash to U.S. farmers who use controversial chemical

https://reuters.com/article/us-usa-pesticides-monsanto/monsanto-offers-cash-to-u-s-farmers-who-use-controversial-chemical-idUSKBN1E50EN

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Monsanto Co will give cash back to U.S. farmers who buy a weed killer that has been linked to widespread crop damage, offering an incentive to apply its product even as regulators in several U.S. states weigh restrictions on its use.

The incentive to use XtendiMax with VaporGrip, a herbicide based on a chemical known as dicamba, could refund farmers over half the sticker price of the product in 2018 if they spray it on soybeans Monsanto engineered to resist the weed killer, according to company data.

The United States faced an agricultural crisis this year caused by new formulations of dicamba-based herbicides, which farmers and weed experts say harmed crops because they evaporated and drifted away from where they were sprayed.

Monsanto says XtendiMax is safe when properly applied. The company is banking on the chemical and soybean seeds engineered to resist it, called Xtend, to dominate soybean production in the United States, the world’s second-largest exporter.

When US regulators think about restricting chemicals you know that the situation is 10 times worse than what they are saying

Monsanto Sues Avaaz For Identity Of 2 Million Anti-GM Activists, But Whose Side Is Avaaz On?

'George Soros and Monsanto are battling it out.

And the only people who are going to lose are activists and consumers.

This is because Avaaz, often labeled the worlds most “biggest and powerful activist network” in existence online, is being dragged into court by Monsanto. The organization has received a 168-page court subpoena in which Monsanto is demanding Avaaz “hand over every private email, note, or record it has regarding Monsanto, including the names and email addresses of all of those who have signed Monsanto campaigns. These include Avaaz’s petition calling for a moratorium on glyphosate, which has attracted over 2 million signatures,” according to GM Watch. Spam_A Spam_B Now Avaaz is fundraising allegedly in order to fight the subpoena.

Avaaz points out that Monsanto has “unlimited resources” and states that,

Quote
If they get their hands on all our private information, there’s no telling what they’ll use it for. So we’re going to fight this. Because Monsanto may have unlimited resources to intimidate, but Avaaz has unlimited people power, and our members just aren’t afraid.


The subpoena actually came about as a result of a class-action lawsuit on the part of people suing Monsanto claiming that Roundup, the company’s famous herbicide, caused non-hodgkin’s lymphoma in themselves or their family.

Avaaz states,

Quote
The subpoena indicates that Monsanto needs all our private information to fight class-action lawsuits against them claiming that their glyphosate caused people’s cancer. If that seems absurd to you, you’re not alone. But they’ve gotten the authority of a US court behind them…


But Avaaz is not some innocent activist organization, nor is it even merely a shadowy platform.'
