The following is an excerpt.
I was surprised to read Rekha Basu’s column (“Deception Undermines Democracy,” April 5) and learn that she is well versed in production agriculture and feels qualified to address the Farmer Assurance Provision in legislation recently signed into law. Noting that her sources of information are Mother Jones magazine, Food Democracy Now, and Food & Water Watch — each with an anti-technology in agriculture agenda — I’m wondering why she didn’t contact a farmer who uses the technology to get a more complete story of what the provision actually does.
I’d be happy to have her visit my farm and learn more about what the technology this provision addresses actually does and how it positively impacts her life in areas she may have chosen to be unaware of.
