    Was recently searching for herbicide data on Google and stumbled across this website. They have a very lengthy PDF report that is loaded with pointless crap, but does describe the history of TGCL.

    Even though it is targeted at TGCL, we are all under that umbrella.

    I think, there are some important lessons here. We should all be ready to combat this lurid propoganda, half-truths, and outright lies. Be ready to give your customers the facts--anytime anyone gives you a chance to explain yourself. If you can write it up and give it to your customers--so much the better.
    Did you realize, in the US more people are killed by alligators than pesticides?

    I bet the horrible chemical smell was just Pendimethilin. TGCL here runs it Mar-June.

    Had a guy come out once, giving me all sorts of crap, wanted to know what I was spraying and why, a bunch of other stuff, cigarette dangling from his mouth. I believe I was just spraying Dormant Oil at the time.

    i guess it's easier to get people on fighting the lco's then the farmer and scientest that bio-enginere corn and soy beans that can cant be eaten by people, and have caused problems in our own food chain with them, and the fact that amost ALL the food grown and sent to 3rd world countries sets and roots because the food that we send them is bio-enginered/hybred and not allowed into their country.

    i like the micky dees coment, man aint that the truth!
