The EPA? State Universities? Are state universities not funded by agro businesses? When it comes to chemicals in the landscape, why? Time and time again throughout history we have learned that things which we thought were safe in fact were not, but now we have it right? I know I did a thread or two like this in the past but... I think about this daily. Even in the so called liberal tree hugger county I live in I see rampant use of herbicides, pesticides, nitrogen (so much that you can smell when you drive with your windows down) etc. Is this a necessary risk to take for generations yet to come?
