Here is your opportunity to tell the USDA your comments concerning the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), specifically sugar beets. This is their article with a link to comment online or address to mail your comments.

Here is one study by the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Here is another article about GMO soy production in Argentina, which I have posted before. One point this article makes is that the use of herbicides was to decrease with the use of this GMO soya but herbicide use has actually increased and herbicide resistant super weeds are being found.
