You may be getting a little more than you asked for with some future corn or soy products. The USDA allowed for the use of seeds that are genetically engineered to be used with 2,4 -D (a Herbicide with a notorious past). Here is a link to an original article.

“Surprised perhaps by the vehement public opposition, USDA acknowledged last year that these 2,4-D crops could in fact cause “significant environmental harm,” and agreed to prepare a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). But in the draft EIS released last week, USDA simply shrugged away all of the public’s concerns and announced its intention to approve both of Dow’s 2,4-D resistant crops.”
