Cotton

Green crops are good crops

In 1997 the Chinese government approved commercial cultivation of cotton plants genetically modified to resist a bollworm that was devastating crops. More than four million hectares of GM cotton are now grown in China. Since the GM cotton was approved a researcher has monitored pest populations across three million hectares to find that a previously minor pest, the mirid bug, has increased in numbers twelve-fold. This happened because farmers started using a less broad spectrum pesticide on their GM cotton. Now however, the farmers are using two thirds of the pesticide they did before on their GM crop and are expected soon to be spraying as much, or more, as ever. GM crops are no magic bullet for pest control. When one pest or weed is targeted, others arise in its place. The best ways forward are integrated, organic, and sustainable solutions that encompass the entire ecosystem.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
