What is GM Alfalfa?



  1. 0 Votes

    As of January 2011, the United States Agricultural Secretary tom Vilsack approved the commercial cultivation of genetically modified alfalfa (GM alfalfa). The effort was controversial because Vilsack formerly was restricting the growth of GM alfalfa, in order to protect organic famers from “bio-tech contamination.” Genetically engineered crops like alfalfa are developed by Monsanto, who trademarks the genes and makes the crops resistant to being killed by Roundup (Monsanto’s main product). Alfalfa is the fourth largest crop in the United States and only one percent of alfalfa is organic.
