GMO protestors gather in Medford



MEDFORD, Ore. — People were out this weekend protesting against the growth of GMO’s in Oregon.

Voters are going to decide on the issue during the election in May of 2014.

For some crops, the USDA requires a 4-mile buffer between a GMO field and a non-GMO field to avoid cross-pollination.

Non-GMO farmers are forced to protect and test their crops, knowing that a contaminated batch could ruin contracts with buyers.
