As amaranth has 18% protein, why does one of the biggest pesticide companies in the world rate it on top of their list of weeds ??

Have you ever watched landline on the ABC midday on sunday's. Some programs have explained the correlation of weedicides and Plant variety rights. So be cynical and all will be clear.

Probably because it can out-compete other plants. If you're trying to grow maize you might not want a field of amaranth taking over instead..
