The USDA is about to approve Monsanto’s genetically engineered alfalfa. One of the biggest concerns is contamination of other crops, including organic alfalfa, which is used by most organic dairy farms.
Food & Water Watch further explains that “if the U.S. Department of Agriculture decides to allow GE alfalfa to be planted, it sets a bad precedent for future decisions about GE crops and puts organic farmers at risk of widespread GE contamination. Rather than rushing through this process, the agency needs to slow down and do a real assessment of the harm that GE alfalfa could do.”
So far they’ve had over 23,000 supporters email President Obama and the U.S. Department of Agriculture urging them to slow this approval down but they still need our help. Please take a few seconds to take action by clicking here!!
