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. Today the Committee took up several bills dealing with genetically engineered seeds and the preservation of organically grown crops. And farmers are trying to find common ground on the issue.
