Start with Non- GMO


The road to Organic farming begins with Non-GMO seed. Even if you are not ready to give up the spray yet, you can still make a difference. As Farmers, we have been told for generations that we feed the world and in that endeavor GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) were introduced and promoted to increase yield, provide weed resistance and pest control.   

Non-GMO Definition


GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This relatively new science allows DNA from one species to be injected into another species in a laboratory, creating combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.

“Scientists and consumer and environmental groups have cited many health and environmental risks with foods containing GMOs. As a result of the risks, many people in the United States and around the world are demanding “non-GMO” foods.”

Demand

Increasingly, consumers desire to know exactly what they are eating and this is reflected in double digit growth in non-GMO sales. Grocery store shoppers are putting so much pressure on retail stores for Organic/Non-GMO products that manufacturers of these products feel they need to go into the farming business in order to have a consistent supply chain. According to non-gmoreport.com presently the US and Canada do not have mandatory labeling laws, more than 64 countries do, and 88% of US consumers demand to know if their food contains GM (Genetically Modified) ingredients.

Non-GMO production is an essential first step towards farmers producing Organic and increasing their margin for their yield. With historic gains in the Organic/Non-GMO Market, demand is influencing US Farmers to transition their crops and reap the benefits. YieldOrganic is here to support Farmers with everything they need to know and steps to follow to capitalize on the opportunity.
