Story at-a-glance -

  • Twenty-one species of “super weeds,” resistant to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, have popped up around the globe since 1996
  • The United States, which leads the world in genetically engineered crop acreage, is also seeing the worst infestation of super weeds; currently, 13 resistant weed species cover more than 11 million acres, mostly those planted with Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) soy, corn and cotton crops
