US farmers flood fields with dangerous poison to fight Monsanto superweeds

You’re a farmer. Season after season, you watch your fields being taken over by Monsanto superweeds, which are resistant to the herbicide Roundup.

But the weeds aren’t resistant. They spread and they grow taller. They’re taking over.
