There is no silver bullet for the numerous and complex challenges farmers face on their farms. In a time of mounting problems like climate change and market concentration, technology should expand the tools available to farmers, not restrict them. That’s why Farm Aid calls for:

(INSANE – INANE  MOSTLY ‘NOT WORKABLE SOLUTIONS’ – JUST BAN THE BAD IDEA -BAD SCIENCE) – JUST BAN!

  • Fair and affordable access to seeds and the right for farmers to save seeds;
  • Increased funding for public plant and animal breeding to develop locally and regionally adapted seed and breed varieties.
  • Antitrust enforcement in the highly concentrated private seed sector;
  • Biotech companies to be held accountable for GMO contamination; and
  • Stronger independent review and oversight of GMO crops and animals prior to their approval and following their release into the environment and marketplace.

Twenty years ago, the first GMO seeds hit the market. In the decades that followed – as more GMO varieties were adopted and the seed sector rapidly consolidated – ethical, political, legal, environmental, economic and social concerns for the technology have emerged. While many farmers say they are pleased with GMO varieties, many others are disappointed, finding mixed results or facing new problems in the extremely concentrated and corporate-dominated seed sector. These problematic trends affect all farmers, whether or not they plant GMO seeds.

**  CONCENTRATION & CORPORATE POWER for Profit!

Since the commercial introduction of GMOs, the seed industry has rapidly consolidated. Today, just four companies control almost 60% of the seed market. For certain crops, the market is even more concentrated. The “big four” seed companies – Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta and Dow – own 80% of the corn and 70% of the soybean market.

This concentration has made a huge dent in farmers’ pockets. USDA data show that the per-acre cost of soybean and corn seed spiked dramatically between 1995 and 2014, by 351% and 321%, respectively.[1] Those costs far outpaced the market price farmers received for corn and soy, leaving them tighter margins on which to run their farms.

**  CONTAMINATION & ECONOMIC LOSS

GMO contamination is well documented. According to the International Journal of Food Contamination, almost 400 cases of GMO contamination occurred between 1997 and 2013 in 63 countries. Part of the problem is the very nature of nature. Many plants are pollinated by insects, birds or wind, allowing pollen from a GMO plant to move to neighboring fields or into the wild. This “genetic drift” illustrates the enormous difficulty in containing GMO technology. Not only is genetic drift impossible to prevent, inadequate regulation also fails to hold seed companies accountable for any resulting damages and ultimately puts the onus on farmers who have been the victims of contamination.

For farmers, the consequences have been severe. Contamination can spark dramatic economic losses for farmers who face rejection from export markets that ban GMOs. Organic farmers suffering from contamination can lose their organic certification and the premium they earn for their organic crop.

As consumer demand for non-GMO products expands, farmers are looking for opportunities to diversify into non-GMO markets that pay higher prices. But the inability of companies to properly segregate GMOs from conventional varieties continues to threaten these options for farmers.

**  SUPERWEEDS & SUPERPESTS

GMO agriculture has led to superweeds and super pests that are extraordinarily difficult for farmers to manage.

Farmers affected by resistant pests must revert to older and more toxic chemicals, more labor or more intensive tillage, which overshadow the promised benefits of GMO technology.

Of particular concern is the overuse of glyphosate, a broad-spectrum herbicide commercially found in Monsanto’s Roundup, used with seeds engineered to withstand its application. Between 1996 and 2011, U.S. herbicide use grew by 527 million pounds, mostly from glyphosate. There are now at least 14 species of glyphosate-resistant weeds throughout the country, and almost double that number worldwide. This very scenario was forewarned in a 2010 report from the National Academy of Sciences, which cautioned that the overuse of glyphosate would render it useless. There are similar reports of bollworm resistance to the Bt toxin in GMO cotton.

Herbicides, including glyphosate, can also increase plant diseases by altering plants’ ability to absorb nutrients and reduce soil health by killing microbes. These chemical-dependent strategies, peddled by major chemical and biotech companies, will keep farmers dependent on increasingly toxic pesticides in a race that nature always wins.

**  BIODIVERSITY

Perhaps the best-known event illustrating the importance of genetic diversity in agriculture is the Irish potato famine. In the 1800s, much of the Irish population depended on the “lumper” potato almost exclusively for their diet. The country was a veritable monoculture – a great vulnerability that revealed itself when blight spread rapidly through the countryside, devastating the crop, the Irish population and its economy.

Lessons from the Great Famine should be heeded. The prevalence of GMOs in major field crops threatens the genetic diversity of our food supply. Genetic diversity helps individual species adjust to new conditions, diseases and pests, and can aid ecosystems in adapting to a changing environment or severe conditions like drought or floods. Climate change presents these exact challenges and farmers need as many tools as possible to address them – right down to the genetic code.

Traits like drought tolerance are complex, driven by several genes. Genetic engineering generally targets one gene at a time. Tools like traditional breeding techniques and seed banks, which preserve the genetic diversity of seeds, are proving more effective at developing drought-tolerant crops. Unfortunately, extreme consolidation in the private seed sector has coincided with the decline of public investment in traditional seed and breed development. At a time when farmers need more options, not fewer, these programs need to be bolstered.

GMOs — Top five concerns for family farmers

PATENTS

It wasn’t until the 1980s that GMOs could be patented, but patents are now key to furthering the power and profits of biotech companies.

Farmers who buy GMO seeds must pay licensing fees and sign contracts that dictate how they can grow the crop – and even allow seed companies to inspect their farms. GMO seeds are expensive and farmers must buy them each year or else be liable for patent infringement. And while contamination can happen through no fault of their own, farmers have been sued for “seed piracy” when unauthorized GMO crops show up in their fields.

Patents make independent research on GMOs difficult. Farmers must sign agreements that prohibit them from giving seeds to researchers or carrying out their own research. Meanwhile, researchers cannot conduct studies on GMOs without a license from the seed company, allowing companies to restrict the nature of research on their seeds.

FARM AID RECOMMENDATIONS

There is no silver bullet for the numerous and complex challenges farmers face on their farms. In a time of mounting problems like climate change and market concentration, technology should expand the tools available to farmers, not restrict them. That’s why Farm Aid calls for:

  • Fair and affordable access to seeds and the right for farmers to save seeds;
  • Increased funding for public plant and animal breeding to develop locally and regionally adapted seed and breed varieties.
  • Antitrust enforcement in the highly concentrated private seed sector;
  • Biotech companies to be held accountable for GMO contamination; and
  • Stronger independent review and oversight of GMO crops and animals prior to their approval and following their release into the environment and marketplace.

GMOs — What eaters need to know

GMOs — What eaters need to know

Twenty years ago, the first genetically modified seeds hit the market. Since then, ethical, political, legal, environmental, economic and social concerns for the technology have emerged. With public dialogue about GMOs at a fever pitch, here’s what you need to know as a concerned eater.

WHAT ARE GMOS? Anything but SAFE for human or animal consumption!

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are plants, animals or microorganisms whose genetic material has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally. GMO technology can introduce individual genes from one organism into another and even across species. To date, the vast majority of GMO varieties are engineered to either survive the application of herbicides and/or to generate pesticides in their tissues to kill pests, although new types – such as anti-browning apple varieties – are starting to hit the market.

ARE GMOS IN MY FOOD?

Yes. In the U.S., several crops are almost entirely genetically modified. These include corn, soybeans, canola, sugar beets, cotton, papaya and, to a lesser extent, alfalfa. While those items may never appear on your dinner plate, these crops are ubiquitous in our food supply.

In processed foods, they show up as sugars, syrups, oils, emulsifiers and other additives. It is estimated that up to 80% of processed foods contain GMOs.

Meanwhile corn and soy constitute the bulk of the feed consumed by cattle, hogs and poultry, while alfalfa is a major component of feed for dairy cows. In other words: most of the animal products you eat depend on GMOs.

Today, new varieties of GMO vegetables and even a new GMO salmon variety are making their way to the marketplace. In short, your grocery aisles are a veritable GMO jungle!

ARE GMOS SAFE?

How can they be when – Magnifies food ~No Longer Bioavailable ~ along with the Seed Locks & Lectins – Mother Nature’s Dirt!

Americans hear conflicting messages from industry proponents who are adamant about GMO safety on the one hand, and on the other by consumer advocates concerned that GMOs present new food toxins, allergens or diseases. But concerned eaters should be skeptical of blanket statements about the safety of GMOs – positive or negative. Here’s why:

Major federal and international agencies all say GMOs have been found to be safe to eat and current studies present no evidence of short-term health impacts. However, most research on GMOs is conducted or funded by the biotech industry and seed patents present major barriers to conducting independent studies on GMOs.

Yet another Reason to Ban GMO~ Big Government protecting Big Business – Not their constituents HEALTH!

Different [GMOs] include different genes inserted in different ways. This means that individual GM foods and their safety should be assessed on a case-by-case basis and that it is not possible to make general statements on the safety of all GM foods.

– World Health Organization

In fact, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) does not conduct independent research on GMOs and does not require animal or human testing – instead it makes decisions based on industry research. So, biotech companies will say that the FDA deems their products safe, while the FDA says it is up to the company to ensure the safety of the product! What’s more, there’s no post-marketing surveillance of GMO foods or of health impacts from their long-term consumption, despite recommendations from the National Academy of Sciences and the World Health Organization (WHO).

MAJOR BLIND SPOTS IN FEDERAL REGULATION & OVERSIGHT

Through a so-called “coordinated framework,” three different agencies – the FDA, US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – have purview over a narrow aspect of GMO review and regulation. Time has shown that this regulatory regime – one based on laws crafted long before GMOs were ever conceived – has limited our government’s ability to address critical environmental and safety concerns.

For example, no agency is equipped to address GMO contamination, which has resulted in dramatic economic losses for non-GMO farmers. GMO production also goes hand-in-hand with pesticide use. The widespread application of glyphosate, known popularly as Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, in combination with Roundup Ready GMO seeds has resulted in several unintended consequences that federal agencies are not equipped to address. The accumulation of glyphosate (now deemed a probable carcinogen by the WHO) in plant tissues, residues on our foods, and new glyphosate-resistant weeds and pests are threats to farmers and eaters alike.

ANOTHER WAY: THE PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE

In the U.S., we often release new technologies and products into the market before we fully understand their risks and benefits. The consequences can play out through recalls, products bans, surprise side effects or benefits, new applications for a technology, and other newsworthy nuggets.

We are still learning so much about genetics: how genes are turned on and off, whether genes can survive digestion and remain active (they can!), what environmental factors influence gene expression. Several other countries regulate GMOs with better safeguards and more rigorous examination of risk than we currently employ in the U.S.

KEY FOOD SYSTEM CONCERNS

BIODIVERSITY

Genetic diversity helps species adjust to new conditions, diseases and pests, and aids ecosystems in adapting to changing environments or severe conditions like drought. The importance of genetic diversity in food systems is well illustrated by the Irish potato famine. In the 1800s, much of the Irish population depended on the “lumper” potato almost exclusively for their diet. The country was a veritable monoculture – a great vulnerability that revealed itself when blight spread through the country, devastating the crop, the Irish population and its economy.

The sheer prevalence of GMOs in major field crops threatens the genetic diversity of our food supply. New challenges like climate change create an urgency to rebuild biodiversity. Farmers need as many tools as possible to do this – right down to the genetic code. Unfortunately, extreme consolidation in the seed sector has eroded traditional public seed and breed development. At a time when farmers need more options, not fewer, these programs need to be bolstered.

**  CONTAMINATION

According to the International Journal of Food Contamination, almost 400 cases of GMO contamination occurred between 1997 and 2013 in 63 countries. Part of the problem is the very nature of nature. Many plants are pollinated by insects, birds or wind, allowing pollen from a GMO plant to move to neighboring fields or into the wild. This “genetic drift” illustrates the enormous difficulty in containing GMO technology. Inadequate regulation to deal with genetic drift compounds the situation.

As consumer demand for non-GMO products grows, farmers are looking for opportunities to diversify into non-GMO markets that pay higher prices or shift away from GMOs altogether. Marketplace consolidation and the failure of regulatory, storage and distribution infrastructure to properly segregate GMOs from conventional varieties continue to frustrate these options for farmers and eaters alike.

FARM AID RECOMMENDATIONS ~ (JUST BAN GMO – FACTORY FRAMS COLLAPSE & ALL OF THE NEED FOR NONSENSE – GOES AWAY!)

When it comes to GMOs, the status quo is failing farmers and eaters alike. Farm Aid calls for:

  • Transparency in our food system through mandatory GMO labeling, so people can make informed decisions about the food they eat; and build demand for non-GMO food.
  • Stronger independent review and oversight of GMO crops, seafood, and livestock prior to their approval and following their release into the environment and marketplace;
  • Antitrust enforcement in the highly concentrated private seed sector;
  • Biotech companies to be held accountable for GMO contamination; and
  • Increased funding for public plant and animal breeding to develop locally and regionally adapted seed and breed varieties.

LOOKING FOR LABELS Trust but Verify – (at this time they are NOT REGULATED OR INFORMED OR ENFORCED)!

Polls show that the vast majority of Americans favor GMO labeling, seeking more information about what’s in their food and how it is grown. But while the citizens of 64 other countries enjoy GMO labeling, Americans are still left in the dark.

Without mandatory GMO labeling, it is extremely difficult to avoid GMOs. But there are a few labels that can help shoppers. Look for the following:

Under USDA’s National Organic Program products labeled organic contain at least 95% organic ingredients produced or processed without synthetic growth hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, GMOs, synthetic ingredients or irradiation. Products containing at least 70% organic ingredients are labeled “made with organic ingredients,” but cannot use the organic seal.

The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization with a third-party labeling program for products grown without using genetic engineering. They verify that food products, from seed to shelf, are produced according to their rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance.
