Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Despite potential roadblocks, GMO labeling set to go into effect on Friday
VTDigger.com - 6/30/2016.
By Mike Polhamus - With Vermont’s GMO labeling law set to go into effect Friday, manufacturers and retailers still don’t know exactly how or whether they will have to comply.

Common Dreams - 6/30/2016.
Statement by Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch - Tomorrow, Vermont’s historic GMO labeling law goes into effect.

But this victory may be fleeting. The Senate will vote next week on a federal bill that would nullify Vermont’s law, and other state labeling efforts percolating, thanks to the heavy hand the ag-biotech industry wields over our congressional representatives.

But there's one thing the Waverly farmer doesn't have: the right to fix his John Deere 8235 R if it goes on the fritz.
