Live Broadcast from the Illinois Specialty Crops, Agritourism and Organic Conference: How Can Organic, Non-GMO, and GMO Crops Coexist?

— filed under:

How can organic, non-GMO, and GMO crops coexist? That is the puzzle that USDA's Advisory Committee on Biotechnology & 21st Century Agriculture (AC21) has been asked to answer. AC21 Committee member Lynn Clarkson, President of Clarkson Grain in Cerro Gordo, IL. will discuss AC21's work and the issues at stake. Of special concern is adventitious presence, the term used for low levels of unintended material in seed, grain, or feed and food products. Clarkson will review the arguments underlying the battles between GMO and non-GMO farmers over adventitious presence and explore potential compromises to minimize adventitious presence in organic, non-GMO, and selected GMO crops.
