TK Ranch
Glyphosate in Farminig

I am sure many of you have seen the weed killer Round-Up (glyphosate) at your local garden supply store, and might even use it to control weeds around your home. But would you spray it on your food? Likely not.

Yet farmers across the prairies (and beyond) now routinely use glyphosate to dry down their grain and pulse crops just before harvest instead of waiting for Mother Nature to let them dry naturally. Instead of fighting the weather, they pencil it in to their calendars, but at what cost?

A recent study by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency found glyphosate residues in 36.6% of the grain crops they tested. Unfortunately, anyone that even mentions Monsanto and/or GMOs on social media is labeled a science hater. As someone with a degree in environmental sciences and decades of experience in the food industry and environmental advocacy, I know how research works. For every scientist that validates a research claim, just as many can reject it. So who do you believe? For me it’s easy; I always err on the side of safety for my family. Does that make me a science hater? I don’t really care. I don’t want Round Up in my food; it’s as simple as that.
