Monsanto is running (ruining!!) the USDA. GMO alfalfa will pollute and ruin organic and non-gmo alfalfa. Alfalfa usually doesn't even require pesticides, now it will be grown with poisonous Round-Up. Your approval of the GM alfalfa is really sad and very very sad to see rich corporations write all your policy. What a sad day for organics, cows, and us. Shame on you!!

I AGREE WITH JULIE AND DEMAND ACTION AS RESOLUTION!!! I AM SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING THE SAME LINE OF BULL FROM THE USDA. QUIT SWEET TALKING THE MEDIA, UNITED WE STAND!!! NO!!! YOU'VE BEEN PAID OFF BY MONSANTO, CLEARLY. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE FOR THE USDA TO MAKE SUCH A BIASED AND UNJUSTIFIED DECISION. SAD DAY IN HISTORY FOR OUR CHILDREN.

I also agree. This decision should be reversed. Consumers want to be able to choose organics that are, in fact, truly organic. Allowing GE alfalfa to go unregulated takes away consumer choice and power, undermining the meaning of the organic label. If the USDA takes actions like this, the USDA designation "organic" will soon have no meaning, and consumers will turn to other certifying organizations with meaningful standards.

I find it interesting that a significant number of comments on this site are against GMO production in this country. I too believe we as consumers need to know what we are eating and what is contained in the food we are eating. It is hard to reverse the damage that has been done because of a lack of labeling and proper regulation when the food was introduced. In fact, the whole process was expedited without proper vetting when these types of foods were introduced over a decade ago. Its like a train without a conductor hard to stop. So the next step as consumers must be to take it to our legislative representatives with an abundance of letters to get this corrected before we all regret this poor government policy. Why does our government allow greed to manifest so easily, big banks, big agrigra, big pharma...
