Does anyone know the typical practices (chemicals) used?
I was amazed years ago when National Geographic showed a large potato field in
the NW being sprayed with 2,4-D to make harvesting easier. The maker of the
fungicide Ridomil claims that it protects the potatoes in transit and market.
(What about in our stomachs?)
What other chemicals lurk in those spuds?
Is the genetically-engineered BT in Monsanto's potato creation present in the
tubers or just expressed in the leaves?
