Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The Battle for Biodiversity: Monsanto and Farmers Clash
The Atlantic - 3/28/2011.
by Anna Lappé. Does genetic modification lead to more and better crops? Or will it destroy the foundations of our food systems? Two weeks ago, Monsanto announced the latest genetically engineered crop it hopes to bring to market: a soybean rejiggered to resist the herbicide dicamba. The new product, says Monsanto, will aid in weed control and "deliver peace of mind for growers." Meanwhile, half a world away, La Via Campesina, a farmers' movement of 150 organizations from 70 countries, had a slightly different idea about what would bring peace of mind to its millions of members: protecting biodiversity.

Guest column by John Billings and Diana George Chapin. Recent events in the Middle East and Japan have caused many prudent Americans to reflect on our own state of preparedness. This — coupled with the precarious state of our economy — is causing anxiety about the future for many thinking people. As a shift in resource availability and economic turmoil threaten the globalist model, a local community model looks more and more desirable.
