It's time to rethink how our industry has been dealing with weed pressure.
Agree.
Way more so with the crop production Ag segment. Farming went way away from tillage, cover crops, etc to reduce weed pressure to a full out SPRAY LIKE HELL mentality. If it isn't a corn or bean plant, SPRAY it. See the roundup resistant weeds that are already out there. Farming has just become too corporate for me, instead of a family enterprise and lifestyle it is a money at all costs game.
