Doesn't seem like the Environmental Protection Agency is protecting the environment or the health of the populace with this move. What is it really protecting here? #corporateprofitsprotectionagency   #epa

Proponents of GMO crops like to say they have "substantial equivalence" to non-GMO crops, based on the differences in the seed. However, this study looks at the end product after harvest. Not surprisingly, the glyphosate tolerant soy was loaded with glyphosate. The study compared 35 different nutritional factors across 31 batches of soybeans grown in Iowa, conclusively establishing "substantial non-equivalence" between GM, conventional and organic "without exception." #agriculture   #gmocrops   #organic

In the not too distant future, swarms of robots will mind fields. Pulling weeds and eradicating pests, the need for chemical herbicides and pesticides will vanish. Robot harvesters will ensure everything is picked at just the right time. Organic agriculture will scale up and compete more on price with chemical agriculture. Chemical agriculture, which is currently poisoning us and the planet, is a dying practice. #robots #agriculture

The goal of biotechnology should not be to outsmart nature. Rather, it should be devising solutions that work within the blueprint provided by nature. Biotech is expensive. If you're not working with nature, nature will win. It has limitless funding and practically infinite ingenuity. You don't want nature as a competitor. Make it an ally. #biotechnology   #agriculture   #gmo   #naturalisbetter

When soil resources built up over generations of organic farming have been fully depleted by chemical-based agriculture, chemical-based agriculture will no longer be viable. It has never been sustainable.   #organicagriculture   #peaksoil   #sustainableagriculture

Consumer Reports has just endorsed I-522, the mandatory GMO food labeling initiative in Washington State. Vote YES on 522. #yeson522   #gmolabeling
