Here in Hawaii, place of more endangered and endemic species than anywhere - there are more unregulated GMO field tests than anywhere else as well! We are growing the newest branch of the radically progressive 107 year old National Farmers Union- advocating for family farmers, fishers and rural communities through its grasroots policy and 3-fold mission of Education, Cooperation and Legislation. The GMO and Biotechnolgy policy is conservative and provides us with the mandate to address this issue form NFU's farmer-authoritative perspective.
