2. Creating Superweeds

Over time, weeds develop herbicide resistance. Some claim that GMOs passed on their resistance, making GMO crops the primary reason for superweeds. The fact is, weeds were developing resistance to chemicals before the creation of GMO crops. Natural selection dictates that the weaker ones die from certain herbicides, leaving the survivors to propagate. This, combined with farmers’ over-reliance on a single weed-killing solution, shows that GMO plants do not create superweeds.
