USDA Survey Asks Question About GMO Contamination and DriftMarch 19th, 2015
The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistical Service (NASS) is completing its USDA Organic Survey.
Although farmers don’t often appreciate surveys, this one has some critical questions about GMO presence in Section 10. NASS is trying to collect information on problems farmers have had with GMO contamination of their organic crops they have sold.
They are accepting the surveys on-line until April 3rd at www.agcensus.usda.gov. If you complete it by paper and mail it they will probably still accept it. Federal law requires NASS to keep all individual information confidential.
Results from the survey will be published in August 2015. For more information about the Organic Survey call 888.424.7828 or visit http://www.agcensus.usda.gov/Publications/Organic_Survey/.
