APR 9, 2013 - Urgent Action Alert from the National Farmers Union-Ontario: Stop the release of GM Alfalfa!
Action Days are planned across Canada to stop the approval of GM Alfalfa on April 9th, 2013. There is still time! Organic farmers, nor so-called ‘conventional’ farmers, see the need for GM Alfalfa. Alfalfa is a perennial plant meaning it does not have to be reseeded each year in the first place. GM alfalfa would lead to an increased use of glyphosate and other pesticides, accounting for even more water and soil pollution. Currently, pesticides are not applied to forage mixtures!! Furthermore, alfalfa is grown as a mixed crop (along with other grasses such as timothy and clover), thus a monoculture alfalfa just doesn’t make sense. Introducing another GM crop will mean that farmers will once again get stuck on the GM/pesticide treadmill producing a crop that many consumers don’t want in their food system at all.
Toronto action April 9 to stop GM alfalfa!
