I suspected that Roundup wasn't as good and "organic" as it was touted to be. But since the chemical companies have their best interests in political pockets, I don't see any reform any time soon.

I began to suspect it was a problem the year after I tried to knock back the sandspurs on my lot with it. It was a total failure. I ended up digging them up, gathering the thorny seed pods by dragging a blanket or shop-vac-ing after I torched them. I managed to lose all of my white yarrow and plantain and I quit using herbicides afterward. Gave the leftover bottle to a friend with a grassy weed problem in the alley behind his house. Only 2 or 3 sandspur plants this year, I'l dig them out and get the seeds out when the bees get less active. On the bright side European nations are tossing GMO's and Roundup OUT. we should too. Keep hoping for the public to wake up and vote
