The Great Roundup Resistant Weed Roundup

pick weeds and improve farming
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

This US government program would hire a million people to pull and destroy Glyphosate resistant weeds, clearing entire states at a time. Paid for with farm subsidy dollars.

       Excellent idea.   

       So, presumably, the plan is to spray the entire country with glyphosate, and then uproot anything that survives that isn't a Roundup-ready foodplant?   

       I can't help thinking that this is a bit like testing matches.

       Don't be silly, [MB]. Obviously you take a leaf sample of every single plant and send it off for genetic testing.

       Pulling the weeds out by hand doesn't guarantee they won't come back.

       Could we use some drones please? Pretty please?
