G.E FREE AND AN ORGANIC NEW ZEALAND

What do Rabbits And Opposums Have In Common With Ge Food?

Nothing, Other Than Once They Are Let Loose In New Zealand
You Can’t Get Rid Of Them !

Opossums are treated like the Koala in Australia but they are pests in New Zealand

Look at the efforts the Dept of Conservation (DOC) in New Zealand have had to go to, to control the opposum population from destroyng our Native Forests , the dropping ( the controversial Poison 1080) also claimed by many concerned
New Zealanders to KILL our Native Birds and pets, disputed by DOC.

Rabbits were originally introduced into New Zealand in the 1900 s
for sport!

Well (some of the same Farmers that support the introduction of GE crops ) are not so happy with their ancestor’s for introducing rabbits to New Zealand, because of the damage they do by eat good pastures. causing erosion ,damaging crops and pastures and reduce farm income as a consequence .

This also costs New Zealand millions of dollars a year in lost feed and in eradication.

HISTORY and HINDSIGHT are wonderful things,
what will the Next generation think of us if we let GE Crops into New Zealand
( Untested like Opposums and Rabbits)
and Potentially much more destructive.

ORGANIC AND GE FREE

Lets keep Politics out of the debate, unfortunately it’s always there, on both sides, as you have the Greens and others against it and the Biotechnology companies for (the economic saviour of NZ) lobbying ( some times bribing) to get it passed.

I guess it will come down to who ever has the Political Power, or the strongest lobby group or the money or both.

In my opinion we are better off to keep
NEW ZEALAND
GE FREE
and ORGANIC

WHY? YOU ASK…

BECAUSE IT MAKES COMMON AND ECONOMIC SENSE.

WHATS WRONG WITH GENETICALLY ENGINEERING FOOD?

WHO Knows and that is precisely my point!
No long term human-safety tests have been conducted on the consumption of genetically engineered food.

Nor has there ever been a thorough environmental assessment to see what happens when these plants are released into the ecosystem.

The First Evidence is Worrying!

Just like chemical farming in the 40s hailed with such fervor that the inventor of DDT won a nobel prize, biotechnology is showing a dark side.

Genetic pollution from pollen drift is spreading throughout North America’s farmland, costing millions in lost export sales.

In Iowa, corn farmers plant 1 % of their crop in GE “Starlink” seed, not approved for human consumption. Within 12 months, 50% of the entire Iowa corn crop tested positive for traces of the Starlink gene, according to David Gould of Farm Verified Organic .

Scientific American reported that GE canola contained a herbicide resistant gene, has spawned ” Super Weeds” in Canada that are resistant to known herbicides.

A moratorium on GE crops for 20 years and mandatory labelling is needed.

We believe there must be a moratorium on the planting of GE crops worldwide for 20 years pending environmental and human-safety studies.

Until such time as the technology is proven safe, all foods containing GE ingredients ( including the finished product ie A big brand hamburger which uses a bread roll made from GE flour) be labelled.

As no body know what GE could do to our environment could easily be another failed experiment like Oppossum and rabbits.

Look at the trouble MAF is having getting rid of another unwanted pest the painted apple moth.

How could you trust the good honest scientists from Monsanto and Tyson or others with such a history of high moral and ethical standards.

They make even the Tobacco companies look like angels!

PROFIT
Being an Island GE FREE and Organic by 2020 will give us a definite edge. Organic produce already sells worldwide for a premium and we can not keep up with the demand.

Niche farming gives us a high value through differentiation lets get known as clean green and organic and GE FREE.

Why it is a good idea to eat certified organic food?

WHAT’S WRONG WITH CONVENTIONAL AGRICULTURE?
In the late 40,s farming changed radically in North America . Toxic chemicals aimed at killing pests ( pesticides ) and weed ( herbicides) became widely available to farmers as did synthetic chemical fertilizers (Super phosphate).

This new chemical farming technology was revolutionary. Pests and weeds were virtually eradicated. Crop yields soared per acre corn yields rose from 26 bushels on 1926 to 127 bushels in 1996. Millions of pounds of toxic chemicals were subsequently poured onto North American fields.

But no long term testing had ever been conducted on this new technology. Very quickly things started to go wrong. Both insects and weeds developed resistance to chemicals. Ever more powerful toxins were needed. Many of these new agri-toxins were indiscriminate, killing everything they touched including the soil.

By late 80s, chemical farming was being seen in a different light. Despite the fact that pesticide use in the United Stated increased 1000% between 1945 and 1989, crop loss almost doubled from 7% to 13%.

Data from over 68,000 groundwater wells in 45 U.S states indicate pesticides in more than 16,000 of them. U.S. Geological Survey data released in 1998 revealed nearly all streams they studied contained at least one pesticide, the result of agricultural run-off from farm fields ( similar results have been found in New Zealand and Australia) Testing of foods eaten by consumers routinely shows pesticide residues.

Even the U.S Congress is now concerned about the impact of the 9,700 approved agricultural toxins on the nation’s children after the National Research Council concluded in 1993 that ” some children were ingesting enough pesticides to harm them, even though their food was within Federal limits.”

The Food Quality Protection Act was passed in 1996 to reassess the standards for pesticides in food. But I suggest you do not wait for their assessment. You have options, eat only certified organic foods and live long and well.

WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT CERTIFIED ORGANIC GOODNESS?
•Good Food
•No synthetic pesticides
•No synthetic herbicides
•No synthetic chemical fertilizers
•No preservatives or additives
•No GE ingredients
•No irradiation
•Better ecology
•Enriched, drought resistant soil
•Less soil erosion
•Less groundwater pollution
•Improved farm biodiversity

WHAT’S RIGHT WITH ORGANIC AGRICULTURE?
Organic farmers replace Toxic chemicals pesticides, herbicides, and fertilisers with different agricultural methods that improve soil fertility and biological diversity.

They control weeds and insects with time proven techniques such as crop rotation, cultivation, mulching, manure spreading, and the encouragement of ” beneficials- predator insects that keep pests in check.

These methods radically change the farm environment, producing a dramatic drop in poisonous run-off and an equally dramatic improvement in the soil ecology.

Organic farms routinely see less soil erosion and more variety of animal species and micro-organisms in the fields. No genetically engineered crops ( GMOs) are planted , or allowed.

Similarly , a certified organic food processor avoids many techniques of conventional manufacturing.

No preservatives, additives or food colouring etc that would degrade the quality of the organic crop is used.

Organic and conventional ingredients are not mixed. Organic raw materials must be specially handled to prevent contamination from bacteria, micro-toxins, and industrial chemicals.

No genetically engineered or irradiated ingredients are allowed. From farm gate to factory door, organic food adds up to a better product

IS ORGANIC HEALTHIER?
Organic food is based on an agricultural growing method and was never intended to be a health claim. But since organic farmers don’t use Agri-Toxins, many credible studies have pointed to health and quality implications.

In a landmark 1999 study of USDA pesticide residue data in produce, Consumers Report® found ” organic foods had consistently minimal or no-existent pesticide residue” when compared to conventional produce.

Recently, the United Nation’s Food and Health Organization ( FAO) reported that ” organically produced foods have lower levels of pesticide and veterinary drug residues and , in many cases, lower nitrate contents… in addition, the ‘oragnic label provides assurance to consumers that no food ingredient has been subjected to irradiation and the GMO’s, (genetically modified organism) ie GE have been excluded.”
