Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Genetically modified alfalfa officially on the way
The Atlantic - 1/28/2011.
By Barry Estabrook – On Thursday, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) had approved the unrestricted planting of genetically modified alfalfa sold by Monsanto Co. and Forge Genetics, despite protests from organic groups and public health advocates and comments from nearly 250,000 citizens asking the department to keep this GMO genie in its bottle.
