Survey Analyzes Possibilities for "Co-Existence" Between GMO and Non-GMO Crops

 The USDA Committee on 21st Century Biotechnology has released policy recommendations for what they call the “co-existence” of genetically modified (GMO) and non-GMO crops. 
The policies were necessitated by a lack of data regarding GMO crop contamination and its effect on non-GMO farmers. 
To fill in these data gaps, Food and Water Watch and the Organic Farmer’s Agency for Relationship Marketing (OFARM) conducted a survey to analyze how non-GMO farmer’s are being affected by crop contamination. 
KBOO's Raechel Bennett spoke with Patty Lovera, Assistant Director for Food and Water Watch, for more about the survey. 5:26 minutes (2.49 MB)
