Glyphosate is not quite dead yet

I've been to several crop seminars this winter in which respected land grant university academicians have cautioned that more and more weeds are becoming resistant to control with glyphosate (Roundup).

Therefore, I was interested to read this release from ISU that says that the world is not falling apart, contrary to the claims of Don Huber, a retired Purdue plant pathologist.  It's rare that academics fuss among themselves in public.

"Information presented recently on the Web and in seminars across the Midwest has portrayed devastating consequences due to the widespread use of glyphosate and glyphosate resistant crops. It is important to recognize that there is little data published in refereed journals to support these claims. Data that are available have been taken greatly out of context to support the accusations. "
