What will farmers do?
It’s not at all clear how farmers would react if food companies are mandated to label their foods’ biotech status. Nor is it clear how food companies might change their product/marketing efforts beyond label wording. Will more farmers accept a premium to grow non-GMO corn or soybeans and shift back to old weed and pest control methods? Will seed companies change their product mix to add more conventional hybrids and varieties, and at what price? More questions than answers remain.
