It’s a fact: farmers’ crops have been contaminated with genetically engineered organisms, also known as GMOs. And as long as the U.S. allows GMOs to be planted, this will continue and likely increase.
Farmers who don’t want to grow GMO crops face significant burdens. To protect their crops, farmers must establish wide buffer zones, losing the use of significant amounts of land. They spend time and extra money to find non-GMO seeds. And if they are contaminated despite their efforts, they lose sales in organic and non-GMO markets.
