USDA Releases Environmental Impact Statement on Genetically Modified Alfalfa

USDA released an environmental impact statement yesterday that evaluates the effects of deregulating genetically engineered alfalfa resistant to broad-spectrum herbicide glyphosate, commercially known as Roundup. The statement lists two preferred options that take into consideration plant pest issues and how genetically engineered, non-genetically engineered and organic alfalfa production can coexist. The environmental impact statement will be available for at least 30 days before USDA publishes a decision on how it will proceed. Read the statement or review the press release.
