Anti-GM activists win in Oregon: GE canola planting stopped

| August 20, 2012

The Center for Food Safety, an anti-GM organization reports that the planting of GE canola in the Willamette Valley of Oregon was halted, due to an action filed at the State of Oregon’s Court of Appeals. The  lawsuit, filed jointly by the Center with Friends of Family Farmers (FoFF) and three Willamette Valley specialty seed producers, challenges the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s (ODA) new temporary rule approving planting of GE canola on vital farming land, without a public comment period or hearing.
