It’s true, there have been confirmed reports of WMDs in China’s Jiangsu province.
Watermelons of Mass Destruction.
The overuse of a chemical growth accelerant was blamed in one report by China Central Television. The news agency also said farmers were overspraying their crops, hoping they could get their fruit to market ahead of the peak season and increase their profits.
According to the Xinhua news agency, 20 farmers in a village in Jiangsu province planted imported seeds from Japan, with 10 households saying their watermelons began exploding last month.
Okay, so greed led to disaster, nothing new there. But what bothers me is this: farmers who didn’t use growth accelerant are still dealing with exploding crops!
Have the Chinese learned nothing from the tragic example of Godzilla? Chemicals can have disastrous consequences!
