Our biggest concern is the headlong rush into overlooking the opportunity that 37 offers us to sell into the Organic market once our products are labeled "NO GMOs".

Are your biotech advertisers so important that you can pretend that all of us have to follow the party line?

It's about freedom. Freedom for our customers to know what they are eating.

Darn straight! We've got long term buyers lined up from TJ's that are ready to take everything we can produce once the labels are harmonized.

I'm sick of technology licenses and all that. Plus the resistant weeds-what a waste of time and money.
