A GMO Farmer Speaks: “To use conventional corn, non-GMO, I'd have to till, apply pre-emergence herbicide. It's more economical and more convenient to use GMO corn on real ground," says Kirk Bair, who grows Monsanto's GMO corn. But his praise stops there. “I only use it because I felt like I had to. My seed supplier said, ‘Kirk it's harder and harder to get a hold of conventional seed.’” Bair continues, “When you start talking about putting an insecticide gene inside of corn, or soybeans, whatever you’re working with, you’re eating that. You’re ingesting that. I want to know what I am eating and I don't want to eat GMO foods."
If he won’t eat it, why would you? Boycott GMOs! Label GMOs. Ban GMOs.

(Note: KEPR-TV incorrectly states, “Seeds are spliced with herbicides among other things to make plants less susceptible to the elements.” The news writers are wrong. There are no commercialized GMO seeds spliced with herbicides. The two dominant traits available in GMO crops are herbicide-tolerance or insecticide-producing, or both. And there are no GMO traits that make GMOs less susceptible to the elements.)
