Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
No brave new world in 1984, but we have pieces of both visions

Bloomberg - 8/4/2011.
Monsanto Co. (MON), the world’s biggest vegetable seed maker, said it will begin selling genetically modified sweet corn in the U.S. this year, the first product it has developed for the consumer market.

That's the question behind a new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists, which determined the culprit to be federal policies that favor industrial agriculture over small and local farms. Change those policies, though, and you get a quick turnaround. According to the report, just a little public funding for 100 to 500 farmers markets a year could create up to 13,500 jobs within five years.
