GMOs IN OREGON - Update with Clint Lindsey

Last May a mystery GMO wheat plant was discovered in a field in Eastern Oregon. The discovery surprised the farmer who found the plants because he had not planted the wheat. Plus GMO wheat cannot be grown commerically at this time. No none has figured out how it got there and five months later Oregon farmers are still sorting through the repercussions of this discovery. On this episode of Locus Focus, farmer and food activist Clinton Lindsey returns to update us on what is happening in Oregon to keep more GMO crops from proliferating. He'll report back on a meeting he attended with U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsak in August.

Clinton Lindsey is president of the board of the Ten Rivers Food Web in the Mid-Willamette Valley and works in marketing and sales for Green Willow Grains in Tangent, Oregon. He is also a co-founder of Benton County Community Rights Coalition.
