This article from the NY Times discusses GMO crop useage and acreage globally. read more
This article really shows how deeply entrenched GMO crops are in the US and a few other countries. This is the number one reason that organic crops cost more in the USA yet demand is skyrocketing. Only 1% of US agricultural land is organic, yet GMO proponents say that globally, only a fraction of agricultural land is GMO. Doesn’t make sense, does it?? Also today, the Wall Street Journal published a story regarding corn imports rising, even with a glut of production here in the US. Corn farmers are complaining that this is driving prices down and “leaving bad tastes in our mouth”. We offer this solution – switch your acreage to organic and watch those trucks come to your farm and take your harvest to market instead of watching those trucks drive by with corn from Brazil.
