SPANISH LOOKOUT SMALL GROUP want GMO corn seeds legal.

Grain growers meet, Biotech presented

On the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 7, the first public meeting of the newly-formed Belize Grain Growers Association was held in Spanish Lookout. The group was formed to promote the introduction of genetically-modified (GM) corn into Belize.
GM seed is prohibited by BAHA from being introduced into Belize because of the growing list of problems with genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and the attractive though unqualified claims made about GM crops.

  A half dozen or so, larger acreage corn growers want to bring in GMO corn to Belize. They have been thwarted by those majority of public opposed to bringing GMO agriculture to Belize, because of the dangers involved.  None of which have been yet proven to be false dangers, but are considered around the world to be dangerous to local agriculture.  They claim a 15% possible production gain, but online statistics and research can find no statistical evidence this is true and solely advertising hype.  Nor can any evidence scientifically speaking prove that any gain would be temporary, IF IT EXISTS at all, other than in the imagination of those proposing the change.  To the contrary, ALL those in the business around the world are talking about the disasters that are occuring from new types of GMO weeds, lower production, lawsuits and spillovers of wind blown GMO corn.
