the farm grows enough for the locals.
probably wont make much actual money.
it stops the need for transporting food. everything is fresh...still full of vitamins, and in cases where we dont sell things in small bulk orders to a few natural health shops, then is only cut/ pulled from the ground when the person comes to get their vegies. Its basically an extension of a personal vegie patch.
this doesnt really matter though, lets get back on thread...indian farmers are killing themselves because they are being forced to buy a patented gm seeds for everycrop, that they actually cant afford and they cant do the business that they have been doing for hundreds of years. Seeds in my opinion are there for those who want to work the land...i just want gm crops to be banned. Agriculture is basically too big, and thats why there has been a need for herbicides etc, but gm modifying the food is not the answer...is it..?
i wanna know, will i be forced in the future to buy gm seeds? or will i be able to do what i am doing now and that is practicing seed saving.
I am not a scientist and i am sorry if my opinion offends, but i am really annoyed that this kind of stuff is being done to what i see as already perfection. The eaarth is perfect a s it is...the food we eat is perfect, but yet we need to constantly stuff around with it to meet our requirements...does anyone really know if the gm crops will not harm us....of course they dont cause we are all the guinea pigs..
I think the work science does is great, but i think this is going to far..
