The War On Nature
Quoting the authors below, “In reality, the problem is not herbicide resistant weeds; it is the perception that they are an enemy that must be destroyed at all costs. Military imagery – especially words like “war” and “battle “- is very common in the literature on weed control. But there is a problem with this perspective, because the war isn’t really against weeds – it is against nature itself.”
