Boulder County Board In USA Votes To Ban GMO Crops On Public Land

December 2, 2016 0 Comments

Crops genetically-engineered to withstand certain pesticides have a short shelf-life in Boulder County, Colorado, USA.

The countys commissioners voted Wednesday to ban growing genetically engineered crops on county open space. The decision does not apply to privately-owned farmland.

The vote puts in place a transition plan to remove GMO corn and sugar beets — the only GMO crops grown locally on open space land — from public land within the next 5 years.
