Bill Freese, a science policy analyst with the Center for Food Safety in Washington, D.C., said the herbicide/seed industry plans to address the problem with a new generation of genetically engineered crops that will be resistant to established weed killers 2,4D and dicambra.

Both those herbicides are more toxic than glyphosate and tend to cause more collateral damage through wind drift and volatilization, Freese said.
