Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Public Hearing for New York State GMO Labeling Bill
The Cornucopia Institute - 7/17/2013.
New York State’s GMO Labeling Bill, A3525-A, is getting a public hearing on July 30, 2013. The New York state Assembly Committee on Consumer Affairs and Protection will be holding the hearing.
Why Don't Farmers Believe in Climate Change?
Grist - 7/17/2013.
By David Biello - If it isn't torrential downpours, then it's too dry. If there's one thing US farmers can count on, it's bad weather, and perhaps as a result, many of them don't think humanity is to blame for the long-term shifts in weather patterns known as climate change.
Monsanto. Broccoli. I Love This. Really!
Mother Jones - 7/17/2013.
By Tom Philpott - As Michael Moss reports in a recent New York Times piece, a group of plant breeders from land-grant universities – including Cornell, the University of Maine, and the University of Tennessee – are looking to extend broccoli's growing season. Using conventional breeding (i.e., not genetic modification), they've created a breakthrough broccoli strain that can "thrive in hot, steamy summers like those in New York, South Carolina or Iowa," while also delivering heads that are "crisp, subtly sweet and utterly tender when eaten fresh-picked," Moss reports.
Chobani Caught in Crosshairs of GMO Debate
Advertising Age - 7/17/2013.
The non-GMO movement is making Chobani its latest target as activists begin to pressure dairy brands that had until now largely escaped scrutiny. An organization called GMO Inside is calling on the Greek yogurt maker to stop marketing its products as "real" and "natural" until it stops using milk from cows that are fed with genetically modified feed.
