What If We Lose Glyphosate?

There is a big trial starting in California with 1600 or so alleging that glyphosate causes cancer.  

 

If this and what will likely be more trials starts going against Bayer/Monsanto and all the other companies that make glyphosate, what will farmers do for weed control?

 

Not going back to cultivators if we're already committed to no-till.

 

Mechanical robots?  Maybe, but when and at what cost?
