Monsanto now offering CASH to farmers if they will use its toxic "dicamba" agricultural ch

•, by: Tracey Watson

Reuters is reporting that Monsanto will be offering farmers refunds of over half the cost of the product in 2018, if they can prove that it was sprayed on soybeans known as Xtend, which have been specially engineered by the company to resist the toxic chemical.

These incentives are being offered even as the country is facing an agricultural crisis caused by dicamba-based products which evaporated and drifted away after being sprayed on crops.

Natural News reported last year that with increasing scrutiny being leveled at Monsanto's most famous weed killer, the glyphosate-based Roundup product, Monsanto has quietly invested over $1 billion in developing dicamba-based products. As bad as Roundup is, dicamba poses even more of a threat because it is more volatile and can easily become airborne and drift from where it has been applied.
