    Where do I go to analyze part or all of a plant for nutritional value? Is there a lab that will test it for me or have most plants already been tested for nutritional value. Thanks for any help.

    Herbicides don't drift away in the atmosphere like burnt fossil fuel. Herbicides float around in waterways (river,creek,stream, ditch,ocean) killing and polluting anything they come in contact with including whole ocean ecosystems, as it appears that the water runoff from a whole country...
