In Perspective: Reviewing the top issues of 2013
GMOs and biotechnology remain an emotional issue. When we ran an article in November about a new GMO apple that is being tested, people came out of the woodwork to comment on it. Most were against the idea of this apple simply because it was a GMO. The goal is to introduce an apple that doesn’t brown when cut.
We will continue to bring you coverage of GMO issues into 2014, including new introductions, research and labeling issues around the country.
To leave on an upbeat and positive note, 2013 brought great new innovative products to the agriculture industry. Please stop and read the products Rich Keller and I chose as the Top 10 products of 2013. We think these products will help ag retailers and consultants do their jobs easier, better and more effi ciently and thereby improve their farmers’ operations. By remaining on top of the best new technology, our readers can bring a brighter new year to their customers—a win-win for all! Have a safe and joyous holiday season!
