3rd generation Iowa Farmer Howard Vlieger talks about GE/GMO crops

Moran County Library, Sat, Sept 7, 6:30-8:30

Hello Business Supporters of I-522,

Howard Vlieger is a 3rd generation farmer in Iowa.  He’s been working on his own farm and with other farmers and scientists on genetically engineered crops for almost 20 years.  He is coming out to Washington to share his experience and talk about what he’s learned regarding the impact of genetically engineered crops on farm operation and livestock.

The information he has will be very relevant to farmers and hobbyist farmers, but it will also be very educational for the general population who wants to learn more about genetically engineered crops.
