This week’s title came from a few different places…? Anyone involved in production agriculture is aware of automation and technologyit’s been around, evolving, changing and progressing the way things are done on the farm.? ?परंतु, recently afarm in the United Kingdom is the first in the world to successfully plant, tend and harvest a crop without a single person ever setting foot in the fieldand that’s an interesting milestone.? That story and another recent piece by the GFNs own Bill Horan in USA Today are below.

भी, डॉ. Kevin Folta takes a look back after a few years of the infamous, and discredited, Seralini study that used the now so oft used pictures of rats with tumors.? It just proves propaganda is powerful, even if it is false.

And then, thanks to the आनुवंशिक साक्षरता परियोजना, this piece in its e-update on 9 Oct was eye-catching, Has the Non-GMO label fever peaked? Major vegetable packing firm removes ?fear perpetuating? label.? ?The link to the original piece from PR Week is below as well, and frankly is a bit refreshing to see after it seems every single food company out there, big and small, has been utilizing fear-based marketing on food labels, in the stores, and all forms of advertising.
