Reviewing GMO, and Pesticide Failure at GM Watch

In the face of claims that GM Bt brinjal (eggplant) has proven a boon to farmers in Bangladesh, the policy research group UBINIG conducted its own field investigations and concluded that the GM crop was a “miserable failure” in its second year of cultivation. The group’s report shows that the crops were nannied through their short lives by government officials and were liberally sprayed with pesticides, including banned ones. The report likens the crop to a sick patient on life support and challenges a previous claim by BBC Panorama that the crop had been a 90% success.

What a mess...The Filipinos went ballistic over them trying to plant that there...It is like taro in Hawaii...a national food for them...GM Watch has set up a page to review all the GMO info that even Bozo could see makes GM unsustainable, and very dangerous...along with pesticide in the news...

Seek the Force...
