AG SEC'Y CONCERNED ABOUT GLYPHOSATE'S FUTURE
Agri-Pulse reports:

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue says he's worried that a series of lawsuits against the Monsanto Co. could eventually end the use of glyphosate herbicide, best known as Roundup.

That would be "devastating" to agriculture, Perdue said when asked about the lawsuits at a House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on Tuesday. "I'm hoping the appeals court will see through this," Perdue said.

Keep in mind: It's not clear how farmers would lose the use of glyphosate. The product is no longer under patent. So even if Monsanto, a unit of Bayer, stopped making it, other companies could continue doing so.
