DEAR SIR:

Now that the German minister has breached his party’s existing policy on glyphosate, coinciding with Bayer’s bid for Monsanto and the glyphosate debate no longer rages, I would like to take this opportunity to respond to the unwarranted and unsubstantiated attack on my competence and judgment by Liam Dunne (IFJ 18 Nov), chair of the IFA Grain Committee.
