Jackson county could be first in Oregon to ban growing GMOs

If voters approve, Jackson County would become the first in Oregon to ban growing genetically modified crops. A local farmers’ group has put a measure on the May ballot. The measure would apply to just one, mostly-rural county. But the campaign has attracted attention – and money – from around the state, and across the nation.

Neither the measure’s supporters nor its opponents seem eager to make the campaign a debate about whether GMO’s are harmful to people or the environment. For supporters, it’s about saving small family farms. Meanwhile, opponents are focusing on one key argument: what it’s going to cost the county.
