Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
USDA looks to approve Monsanto’s drought-tolerant corn
The New York Times - 5/11/2011.
By Paul Voosen – The Obama administration will seek to allow the unlimited sale of a corn variety genetically engineered by Monsanto Co. to resist drought, the Department of Agriculture announced today. The corn, if approved, would be the first commercial biotech crop designed to resist stressful environmental conditions like drought, rather than pests or herbicides.

I decided to create that tea.”
