Our GMO cornfields are too quiet: All Life Chemically Exterminated - Except The Corn -

Our GMO cornfields are too quiet: All Life Chemically Exterminated -  Except The Corn - | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

 NPR:

▶  CORNSTALKS EVERYWHERE BUT NOTHING ELSE, NOT EVEN A BEE

Corn farmers champion corn. Anything that might eat corn, hurt corn, bother corn, is killed. Their corn is bred to fight pests. The ground is sprayed. The stalks are sprayed again. We've erased everything else. (AND WE EAT THIS TOXIC FOOD?)

       We need to feed our planet, of course. But we also need the teeny creatures that drive all life on earth. There's something strange about a farm that intentionally creates a biological desert to produce food for one species: us. It's efficient, yes. But it's so efficient that the ants are missing, the bees are missing, and even the birds stay away. Something's not right here. Our cornfields are too quiet....  http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2012/11/29/166156242/cornstalks-everywhere-but-nothing-else-not-even-a-bee
