Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bills Seek To Protect Organic Crops From GE Seeds
Maine Public Broadcasting - 4/17/2009.
By A.J. Higgins – Are Maine's farmers benefitting from biotechnology or are they really planting the seeds of their own destruction? That's one of the questions confronting the Legislature's Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee.
