Frankenstein ‘superweeds’ have swamped 60 million acres of US farmland and can’t be killed

cartoon_superweed1
The cartoon above indicates a picture of Frankenstein ‘superweeds’  that have become extremely difficult to deal with especially in the US.  Over 60 million acres of US farmland have been affected and there is nothing known to keep them under control. These plants grew through growing crops that were genetically modified to hold up against powerful weedkillers. The reality is that these weeds have now become so resistant to these weedkillers and are capable of taking over fields. Biotech companies suggest using more powerful chemical weed killers by developing new strains of GM crop. Some indicate that going back to more natural crops and weed control can help stop the spread of the Frankenstein ‘superweeds’.
