US Agricultural Likely Would Not Survive A Ban of Glyphosate

Glyphosate reduces farmer's costs to such an extent that they most would not remain in business without it

Thursday, April 23, 2020 - The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and many US Agricultural associations are standing firmly behind Bayer/Monsanto and the safety of the herbicide glyphosate as a safe product that easily controls weeds and lowers the cost of producing food. The EPA and FDA have both issued unsolicited statements recently that support the safety of the weedkiller and farmers that use the herbicide state that they may not be in business without the chemical. According to the online publication "Progressive Farmer, "a consortium of the nation's leading agricultural organizations have filed a motion to intervene in a federal lawsuit that challenges EPA's interim registration of the herbicide glyphosate. The National Association of Wheat Growers, National Corn Growers Association, National Cotton Council of America, American Soybean Association, American Sugarbeet Growers Association, National Sorghum Producers, American Farm Bureau Federation, Agricultural Retailers Association, National Association of Landscape Professionals, Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, and Monsanto all support the EPA and FDA's positive position on the safety of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup Weedkiller, as do their constituencies that make up the organizations." The New York Times recently wrote about a typical American farmer's opinions on why after using glyphosate regularly for over 40 years on his farm he has stayed healthy and just as importantly stayed in business.

According to the Times, Wisconsin corn, soybean, and alfalfa farmer Andy Bensend has been using Roundup weedkiller on his 5,000 acres for 40 years and told them that neither the hundred million dollar jury awards nor the thousands of pending lawsuits against Monsanto/Bayer would have an impact on his or his associates using glyphosate to kill weeds. Mr. Bendsend calls Roundup herbicide "a fabulous tool," and that "he relies on Roundup's key ingredient - glyphosate - to easily kill weeds, helping increase his yields and reduce his costs."

Although Bayer's $63 million investment in acquiring Monsanto in 2018 is not looking like a great investment, experts are gaining confidence that the company can settle the 100,000 or so pending lawsuits against them for somewhere in the 10-20 billion US dollar range. They are also confident the company can continue to sell Roundup and the genetically modified seeds that are needed to survive Roundup spraying to the farmers around the world that needs them going forward. According to the Times, there is a likelihood that Bayer could weather the current storm and continue to be profitable for years to come. "Independent market researchers project that the global market for glyphosate could reach $12 billion by 2024, regardless of health worries," the Times reported.
