I was speaking to a farmer today from the USA who said he used to farm using GMO’s for 12 years, in the beginning the results were fine but after a while his crop yields on vegetables he produced began to fall. Then his pig stock which he fed GMO grain, began to suffer and then die off early. His family also were experiencing health issues.
He looked into several possible causes of the falling crop yields and health issues and finally went back to conventional agriculture (non GMO). His vegetable yields began to improve and he stopped feeding his pigs GMO’s and the health of his pigs improved as well. The results were dramatic enough to convince him to stop planting and using GMO’s and return to conventional agriculture then begin the move toward organic agriculture.
He is delighted with the results he is now achieving and the comments he is getting from customers on the improved flavour of his produce. From a confirmed GMO farmer he is now a confirmed anti GMO campaigner.
