"Crops are sprayed with weedkiller that kills the crop" That doesn't sound like the best farming or economic practice I've ever heard of.

..."In fact, researchers have found that more than half of dietary exposure to glyphosate can be traced to preharvest use. That’s because in addition to killing weeds, it can also serve as a drying agent. By applying this toxic chemical to crops three to seven days prior to harvest, farmers can make their yields a lot bigger. It also helps the plants resist mold during storage.

The practice began in Scotland back in the 1980s, where farmers were struggling to get their barley and wheat to dry evenly so they could start harvesting it. By spraying the crops with glyphosate shortly before harvest, they found it dried out faster"....

Well, that is what they do....maybe they use more euphemistic terms such as "desiccant" that sounds a little more palatable than weedkiller...But that is what they spray 7 to 10 days before harvest...weedkiller.

..."The Soil Association claimed a victory today in the campaign to stop glyphosate being sprayed on wheat before it makes its way into British bread. Today (13 April 2016) the European Parliament has voted in favour of re-authorising the use of glyphosate but has limited this approval to seven years – with a number of significant restrictions. This includes strict limitations on pre-harvest dessication, which has been the focus of the Soil Association’s Not in Our Bread Campaign"...

"kills the crop" isn't what it does. The crop (grain) is still alive and well.

And now you're saying that's what they did, as opposed to do. make your mind up.

As I said above, the crop is sprayed with weedkiller to effectively kill it so that it dries out. It is that simple, if there is contradiction, it exists in your own miss-understanding...

Well, is the grain still alive and full of roundup when the rest of the plant is dead???? That is what you are saying??? LoL!

If the grain wasn't still alive it wouldn't sprout which it does. So yes, the grain's still alive.

So, when does it sprout after it has been harvested? Before or after it is baked in an oven?
Never mind that argument - why are people voting hot on flour from despicable, tax-avoiding Amazon when it's available cheaper all the time in Aldi (other supermarkets are available).

When it's lying in the field. It's called spillage.

Really, and you are an expert on 'spillage' and watch that it still continues to 'sprout' despite being full of weedkiller??? I am impressed!

You need to go out and have a look around fields where grain's been harvested. You'll find spillage in the field and on the roads leading from the fields. Some will be eaten by birds and mice. Some will grow.

Of course, somehow you know that this 'spillage' occurred at harvest time from crop that had been sprayed with systemic weedkiller...sure.

There's a recurring theme of a lack of logic, not to mention knowledge, in your posts. Where do you think sprouting grain at field edges and along roadsides where grain has been transported in open trailers has come from. Could it be the fairies and pixies? Is it a coincidence that barley grows where barley had been grown and wheat grows where wheat had been grown?
Instead of sitting spouting garbage, try going out into the countryside and see what farmland looks like. You might learn something.

And so you are the fountain of all knowledge...as if! Go and find a school boy to continue your little school boy debate.

I came to find out what this flour was like for several types of bake. And I've learned SO much more!
Yay, its Fighting Friday on HUKD!
