July 2013: Genetically modified alfalfa is not yet on the market in Canada but this could change soon. Alfalfa is an important crop for family farmers and for the production of many organic foods. On July 25, two Ontario farmers submitted a formal request for an environmental assessment of GM alfalfa. You can support them and farmers across Canada by writing to your Premier today!
