In 2006 Syngenta-sponsored survey,
of the southern U.S. farms surveyed:
 • 83% use Roundup Ready technology.

 • 42% of those use only glyphosate for weed control.

 • Average use period of Roundup Ready was 4.4 years.

 • 39% of growers reported glyphosate resistant weeds.

 • Nationwide < 5% of farmers would reduce use of Roundup Ready technology
   to solve resistance problems.

 • Southern farmers without resistance problems indicate that glyphosate
   resistance would cost them an extra $15-16 per acre for weed control and 7-
   8% yield loss.

 • 53% of southern farmers believe new products will solve the problem.
