Bringing the Voice of the World’s Farmers to North America


The Global Farmer Network invited radio broadcasters from the National Association of Farm Broadcasters (NAFB) to a Zoom meeting during  Mobilizing the GFN in Support of a Resilient Agri-Food System, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This interview opportunity for NAFB members in collaboration with the Global Farmer Network, brought four farmers with diverse voices to the interview panel to address issues that are top-of-mind for many producers across North America.

GFN participants:

  • Maria “Pilu” Giraudo, Argentina
  • Marcus Holtkoetter, Germany
  • Guillermo Breton, Mexico
  • Patience Koku, Nigeria

Here, on the Brownfield Network, Mexican farmer Guillermo Breton addresses the Mexican government’s decision to ban GM corn imports from the U.S. made  “Without any science regard,” Breton said. “Just because of some ideologies against GMOs.”
