March 10th, 2004: GMOs- a farmers perspective

At the recent meeting for the International Cartegena Protocal on Biosafety, the international community made steps towards minimizing the possability of genetic contamination from genetically modified organisms. Over 50% of all soybeans and cotton grown in the US have been genetically modified. What does this mean for the many farmers and for consumers who grow or eat these crops?

Join Jerry as we hear the stories of several farmers concerned about genetic contamination and steps to label these crops.
