National Academies of Science to Release “The Impact Genetically Engineered Crops on Farm Sustainability in the United States”
The National Academies of Science will be presenting a report next week about the impact of genetically modified crops. The report release will be open to the public and will be streamed via live webcast at www.nas.edu. Please see below for more information. We think the report will share very interesting information and we will report on its findings after the release!’
The National Research Council is pleased to invite you to attend the public release of a new report on genetically engineered crops. The Impact of Genetically Engineered Crops on Farm Sustainability in the United States is the first comprehensive assessment of the environmental, economic, and social impacts of the GE-crop revolution on U.S. farms. It addresses how GE crops have affected U.S. farmers, both adopters and nonadopters of the technology, their incomes, agronomic practices, production decisions, environmental resources, and personal well-being. The report offers several new findings and recommendations that will be of interest to farmers, industry representatives, science organizations, policymakers, government representatives, and the public.
The public release and briefing of this report will be held on Tuesday, April 13, at 11:00 am in the Lecture Room of the National Academies of Sciences building, 2101 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC. Members of the public are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to Kamo Mutu at firstname.lastname@example.org. The briefing will also be streamed live via webcast.
