Monsanto and it's agribusiness peers claim that they can solve the superweed problem their Roundup Ready system has created for farmers.

There's a real solution available. Healthy farms. It's grounded in science, it's sustainable and cost-effective, and more and more farmers are putting it into practice.

But the transition isn't easy, and farmers need new farm policy and more research to help make it happen.

I am having a difficult time with my digital copies! They mean more to me than the hard copies because I read them on my IPAD in areas where I can't get internet! I tried to sign on, to Zinio, but forgot my password! They keep telling me they are sending a new one, but this never happens! Their website leaves a lot to be desired. I should have all my digital copies with me since I will be spending over a month in Hawaii on the Big Island with not much internet. I am not happy. I am leaving tomorrow and I guess I have to pack that extra weight and take my magazines! Please figure something else out for your digital copies! This company is not working in this digital age!
