Record US Farmers Switching to Non-GMO Crops in 2015

Record US Farmers Switching to Non-GMO Crops in 2015 | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it

"Due to failing crops and massive consumer demand for organic food, many conventional farmers are turning away from GMO crops in 2015.

 

“NON-GMO IS MORE PROFITABLE.”

This is the rising sentiment among farmers of the US as a confluence of factors urges them to become pro-organic. From falling GMO grain prices to a rising tide of public distrust of genetically modified ingredients, failing GMO traits, higher GMO seed prices, and the premium prices that people willingly pay for quality food over toxic junk, the conventional farmer is changing his tune when it comes to Big Ag practices."

Here is more about a traditional alternative to GMO corn that may have even greater yields and be far better for the Eco system on a farm as well. This is a link to the details of the study:

Monsanto and the Bio-Tech Conglomerates: Sowing the Seeds of Famine in Ethiopia

"In other words, the famine – itself in large part a product of the economic reforms imposed to the advantage of large corporations by the IMF, World Bank and the US Government – served to undermine Ethiopia’s genetic diversity to the benefit of the biotech companies. With the weakening of the system of traditional exchange, village level seed banks were being replenished with commercial hi-bred and genetically modified seeds. In turn, the distribution of seeds to impoverished farmers had been integrated with the “food aid” programmes."
