US agency for Fish and Wildlife Service is determined to STOP using GMO by January 2016.
Indian ill-informed journalists and intellectuals who rely on foreign lab research papers to support or oppose science (and least bothered to use common sense) – Please NOTE.
MEMO: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the first U.S. Government Agency to ban GMOs and bee-killing Neonicotinoid insecticides. James Kurth, National Wildlife Refuge System Chief, said, ‘We have demonstrated our ability to successfully accomplish refuge purposes over the past two years without using genetically modified crops, therefore, it is no longer possible to say that their use is essential to meet wildlife management objectives. We will no longer use genetically modified crops to meet wildlife management objectives system-wide.’
“We are gratified that the Fish and Wildlife Service has finally concluded that industrial agriculture, with GE crops and powerful pesticides, is both bad for wildlife and inappropriate on refuge lands,” stated PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch. “Since refuges have already demonstrated that they do not need these practices, we would urge the Fish and Wildlife Service to make the ban immediate, not wait until 2016, and to eliminate the loopholes in its new policy.”
