US Fish and Wildlife Service Ending Neonic and GMO Use in Most National Wildlife Refuges

These elements of “industrial agriculture” are not needed at refuges.  Pressure to ban neonictinoid pesticides and mobilization against GE crops has been growing. The U.S. government is perceived by man…


GR:  The US Fish and Wildlife Service will terminate use of Neonics and GMOs in most wildlife refuges by 2016. Let’s hope this is the start of a change across the US Department of the Interior, the largest manager of US public lands. It will be a struggle; Bayer, Monsanto, Syngenta, and the other large producers of pesticides and/or GMOs will oppose the change with millions of dollars spent on politicians and leaders of the Interior Department’s nine bureaus.
