Karen Batra of BIO encourages farmers to direct consumers to resources where conversations occur:

• GMO Answers (www.gmoanswers.com), produced by members of the Council for Biotechnology Information, provides information and answers visitors’ questions about biotechnology in agriculture and food production.

• Food Dialogues (www.fooddialogues.com), hosted by the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, tackles labeling with perspectives from a variety of experts.

• The Center for Food Integrity’s Best Food Facts (www.bestfoodfacts.org) features a “true or not” section about biotech issues.

• The Grocery Manufacturers Association’s Get the Facts on GMOs (www.factsaboutGMOs.org) posts fact sheets and other resources.
