MEDFORD, Ore. — The Battle over a ban of genetically modified organisms in the Rogue Valley is a hot election issue. Farmers on both sides continue to reach out to voters in an effort to impact the outcome.
Today, the Jackson County Cattlewomen’s Association is teaming up with the Stockman’s Association to urge voters to reject the GMO ban. Opponents of the ban say the technology increases food production and is less harmful to the environment.
Supporters of the proposal say GMOs have undefined impacts and their use can taint surrounding farms.
