A New Solution for Beets


The USDA has unveiled a plan that would allow the planting of Roundup Ready sugar beets in 2011 under strict regulations.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the USDA’s proposal represents the preliminary stage of the process and will be followed by a 30-day comment period before the department makes a final decision.  The USDA remains in a legal battle with groups seeking to halt all production and planting of the genetically engineered sugar beets because of concerns that the plants contaminate nearby non-biotech crops.
