Why is it that "the solution" to any weed problem, in modern monoculture farming, is more chemicals that kill the life of our soils? Why is it that "Extension specialists" are quoted, but the bottom line solution most always comes from Monsanto (advertiser in publications putting out articles). Are we stuck on stupid?

I would like to have your comments on this subject? Please post at Reddit:

I have provided Polyculture Farming links: permies.com & richsoil.com at the bottom of the Blog Post, hoping to attract more new visitors to a place where better alternatives to monoculture farming can be found.

Regards to all,
Monte Hines
