Help keep local farms free of contamiaents    (Posted Wed, Aug 24 '11 at 04:17 UTC)

From the Center for Food Safety (CFS): We need your help. As you may know, CFS is once again challenging the USDA?s decision to deregulate genetically engineered, "Roundup Ready" alfalfa. Roundup Ready alfalfa can contaminate other non-genetically engineered alfalfa seed and hay. They also lead to the creation of herbicide tolerant weeds, weeds that result in increased use of herbicides. The spraying of these toxic herbicides further harms U.S. agriculture and the environment. The potential for contamination, increased weed resistance, and the greater use of herbicides on alfalfa can injure our agricultural production, harming farmers, ranchers, organic producers, dairy producers, bee keepers and consumers alike. If you are a farmer, organic producer, dairy rancher, or bee keeper who is concerned about Roundup Ready alfalfa, we are gathering information about these negative impacts and would appreciate hearing from you. Please contact us if you are interested/are able to provide assistance.

Please reply to this email as soon as possible if you think you are able to help us. In your response, please tell us:

If you are a farmer, organic producer, dairy rancher, or bee keeper
Your name, email and phone number.
Anything you?d like to include about your concerns regarding Roundup Ready alfalfa.
Please contact Sylvia Wu at or (415) 826-2770.
