As Monsanto and Bayer move closer to a merger the threat to agriculture locally and internationally expands. Dangers loom large: poisoning of agricultural and residential areas, loss of seed and plant diversity, soil and water contamination and depletion, loss of pollinators, cancer risks and more. The new pesticide Dicamba promises to be worse than Roundup. The end result could well be environmental devastation and an inability to feed ourselves. Sound alternatives to industrial agriculture are key.
