The battle continues in the fight to stop genetically modified (GMO) alfalfa from hitting the market. For the past several months, we've fought against the deregulation of GMO alfalfa. If allowed, organic dairy and livestock farmers will lose more than $1.4 billion in sales and consumers can say good-bye to organic dairy products forever. Already, Monsanto's cronies in Congress and agribusiness lobbyists are pressuring Vilsack to issue a “partial” deregulation so GMO alfalfa can be planted this fall and next spring. The ball is now in Vilsack's court. He needs to hear from you today!
Tell Secretary Vilsack that it's time to stand up for America's organic farmers and consumers. It's time to ban GMO alfalfa permanently.
