RECENTLY ON TOL:

Wes Sander was awful. He doesn't understand anything about this. The seed industry is in the valley not "just because the industry developed there" but because seed crops require very specific climatic conditions that are found in the Willamette Valley. If he's the reporting export on this both sides are in trouble. Nor does he understand the difference/similarity between table beets and sugar beets. Yikes.
This suit was primarily about organic seed farmers, organic farmers, and consumers having the right to have seed free of GE contamination. The judge's opinion (which Sander's never referred to) was clear on this issue of choice of seed/food. Could OPB really not get a better expert on this?
