Why Is Glyphosate Sprayed on Crops Right Before Harvest?

Joel Ransom, North Dakota State University agronomist: no statistics on the # of acres of wheat desiccated with glyphosate; along with wheat and oats glyphosate desiccates wheat, oats,  lentils, peas, non-GMO soybeans, corn, flax, rye, triticale, buckwheat, millet, canola, sugar beets, sunflowers, and potatoes; plus edible beans grown in Washington and Idaho.

Charles Benbrook, PhD: 'Spraying glyphosate on wheat prior to harvest, known as desiccating, began in Scotland in the 1980s. Farmers had trouble getting wheat and barley to dry evenly so they can start harvesting. So they kill the crop (with glyphosate) one to two weeks before harvest to accelerate the drying down of the grain. I don't understand why Monsanto and the food industry don't voluntarily end this practice. They know it contributes to high dietary exposure (50%) of glyphosate.'

If they were to stop this practice, it would slow down their plan to cull humans so that they can have the earth to themselves.

It is nothing short of Genocide, but fortunately, many nations have banned Roundup, including the leading Genocidal nation of the 20th century, Germany, which must be able to recognize genocide more easily than others, including the citizens of the United States, eh? And Vietnam? For sure, another nation that knows something about US neurotoxins as in from their experience with AGENT ORANGE, another glorious chemical made by Monsanto.


To wit, from Baum Hedlund Law firm in Beverly Hills, with which RFK Jr. is affiliated:

Until recent years, I got a lot of ads warning me about the time recommended between the last spray and the harvest, but even those have stopped now. The farmers do as they please.

You have done an outstanding service by being on top of this and aspartame, and dedicated to putting out the word.

(I posted this comment on another one your quicklinks, but I just want to make sure you and others see it.)
