Over-reliance on glyphosate-type herbicides for weed control on U.S. farms has created a dramatic increase in the number of genetically-resistant weeds, according to a team of agricultural researchers, who say the solution lies in an integrated weed management program. "I'm deeply concerned when I see figures that herbicide use could double in the next decade," said David Mortensen, professor of weed ecology, Penn State. Since the mid-1990s, agricultural seed companies developed and...

Roundup Ready Soybean
2013-10-02 13:09:21

Roundup Ready Soybean, GTS 40-3-2, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant soybeans created by Monsanto. Glyphosate kills plants by obstructing the synthesis of the essential amino acids phenylaline, tyrosine, and tryptophan. These amino acids are referred to as “essential” due to the fact that animals cannot make them; only plants and micro-organisms can make them and animals acquire them by consuming plants. Plants and microorganisms make these amino acids with...

2013-10-02 12:54:36

Vistive Gold, MON 87705, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant low-linolenic, high-oleic soybeans created by Monsanto. Vistive Gold was designed to be a replacement for hydrogenated oils and fats, which are high in trans-fatty acids. The decreased linolenic content enables Vistive Gold to have favorable traits for deep frying and increasing the shelf life of foods. The Federal Register declared on June 28, 2011 that Monsanto was petitioning the Animal and Plant...
