“PAN International calls on governments and policymakers to take immediate measures to curtail and stop the use of herbicide formulations containing glyphosate applied to genetically engineered seeds, other crops, in urban areas and home gardens.

Glyphosate also now joins the growing list of highly hazardous pesticides that should be phased out and banned immediately.” – See more at: http://www.panap.net/campaigns/hhps/pan-international/post/2653#sthash.qEc81Z4n.dpuf
