- The actual claim is: “GE crops have been responsible for an increase of 383 million pounds of herbicide use in the U.S. over the first 13 years of commercial use of GE crops (1996-2008)”
- The USDA did not say that, the Organic Center did. https://www.organic-center.org/reportfiles/GE13YearsReport.pdf
- Peer-reviewed research shows the opposite. http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0111629
Out of curiosity, after how many decades of successfully growing GE crops are farmers no longer acting without considering long-term interests? I would think two decades is more than adequate, but apparently you feel that isn’t enough.
