The USDA is DARING us to SPEAK UP against Monsanto!








In its own report, the USDA says that not enough consumers care enough about organic foods for the USDA to block Monsanto's modified alfalfa seeds.

Don't be silent on this one folks, the USDA is considering allowing Monsanto to patent it's GM alfalfa.

Why should you care?

“Alfalfa is one of the major food sources for certified organic animals, not only because of its quality as forage, but because Monsanto's patented genes are already found in 95% of soybeans and 80% of corn. If the USDA lets Monsanto sell its new alfalfa, it will inevitably overtake organic alfalfa crops through the natural pollination process. [3] As a result organic farmers may be feeding their cows genetically modified food.” by ana sofia joanes, fresh, the movie.

That's why!

And there's a lot of other reasons you can read about here at the WORC website before you make your comments.

Alfalfa is one of the major food sources for certified organic animals, not only because of its quality as forage, but because Monsanto's patented genes are already found in 95% of soybeans and 80% of corn.

If the USDA lets Monsanto sell its new alfalfa, it will inevitably overtake organic alfalfa crops through the natural pollination process. As a result organic farmers may be feeding their cows genetically modified food which goes against it's regulation of organic certification requirements.

This GM Alfalfa Would Significantly Increase Pesticide Use and Thereby Harm Human Health and the Environment.
1. I hereby request that you don't allow Monsanto non-regulated status.
2. Please extend the deadline for public comments by 30 days.
3. Immediately Release the “Plant Pest Determination” for Comment
