Despite the efforts of radical anti-technology groups, voters in three California counties on Election Day proved that the majority of consumers support the cultivation of biotech crops. Voters in Butte, Humboldt and San Luis Obispo counties rejected ballot measures that would have banned the growing of biotech plants in those counties.

According to National Corn Growers Association President Leon Corzine, the votes not only slowed the anti-biotech movement in California, but also proved that farmers aren't the only ones who recognize the benefits of biotechnology.
