66. I wish I could dig up that article...

it was in something like Smithsonian or Nat Geo about one or two years ago, and it talked about how even organic farms must use herbicides to clean up the soil prior to planting, because weeds would otherwise completely choke out their crop. I don't remember the herbicide they mentioned, but it didn't sound like anything you listed.

I remember I was very surprised to read that.
