In reply to Alan Vaughn re Post Brexit Agrochemical Apocalypse. Hi Alan. You are certainly in favour of spraying cereal crops prior to harvest with the proven carcinogen Roundup, or Glyphosate it’s main ingredient. That it is a proven carcinogen should be enough reason to ban it in my opinion, no matter how convenient to farmers. I am old enough to remember working on farms pre Roundup, and we harvested crops without it without problems. When growing food crops, ease of production should in my opinion, never jeopardise consumer safety, yet it seems that it frequently does.
