Agricultural Coexistence?????

USDA Requests Public Input on “Agricultural Coexistence” 
GMO/GE Contamination USDA Website Working Now! 
New Deadline March 4

MOFGA notified its Bulletin readers last week that USDA is seeking comments by March 4 – an extended deadline – on its proposals for coexistence among farmers who use genetically engineered crops and those who don’t (including organic growers and conventional growers who do not use GE/GMO seed). Unfortunately, the USDA comment site was not working after that notification appeared. It is working now – so please let USDA know what you think about coexistence between farms that do and do not use genetically engineered crops. More information.

Comment online via the Federal eRulemaking portal or mail comments to 
Docket No. APHIS-2013-0047
