Farmers Go Wild - Going beyond organic, a new generation of farmers is nurturing nature as well as crops.

Farmers Go Wild - Going beyond organic, a new generation of farmers is nurturing nature as well as crops. | GMOs | Scoop.it

The words “wild” and “farming” may seem at odds. In the last century, with the development of petroleum-based pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, farms were increasingly modeled on industry. “Fencerow to fencerow,” mono-crop farming emphasized high production and minimized the importance of biodiversity. Farmers ripped out vegetation, cut down forests, shot predators, and filled in wetlands and streams. Today, agriculture is a major cause of the habitat loss that puts endangered species at risk.

For Us, Tolls the Bell............Poverty and Food Insecurity in the Developing World | GMOs | Scoop.it

This article is sequel to 'For Whom The Bell Tolls.' 

Just as the American small farmers are being systematically decimated [yes, decimated: arrested, penalized for violation of idiotic rules, burdened with excessive costs, etc] and American consumers have been fed poisoned foods, our small farmers and agricultural system are being destroyed; and Indian consumers will soon be eating the same poisoned foods as their American counterparts. For us, therefore, tolls the bell.

A Collective Small Farmers Lawsuit: GMO (Transgenic) Modified Crops destroying their organic crops

A Collective Small Farmers Lawsuit: GMO (Transgenic) Modified Crops destroying their organic crops | GMOs | Scoop.it

Consumer resistance to transgenic (GMO) food is high, part of a debate that is coming to life in courtrooms and online.

Last year, according to the Department of Agriculture, about 90 percent of all soybeans, corn, canola and sugar beets raised in the United States were grown from what scientists now call transgenic (genetically modified) seed. Most processed foods (staples like breakfast cereal, granola bars, chicken nuggets and salad dressing) contain one or more transgenic ingredients, according to estimates from the Grocery Manufacturers Association, though the labels don’t reveal that. (Some, like tortilla chips, can contain dozens.)

Common ingredients like corn, vegetable oil, maltodextrin, soy protein, lecithin, monosodium glutamate, cornstarch, yeast extract, sugar and corn syrup are almost always produced from transgenic crops.
