In your opinion, what can the ag industry do to combat misinformation to the consumer? Obvious examples being the non-GMO labelling/fearmongering, the glyphosate concerns you alluded to, or even the use of certain seed treatments and how they affect the environment around them? The misinformation being spread on one topic (non-GMO) affects the way members of the industry dismiss research about another topic (neonicotinoids) and it becomes a political us vs them stance. What sources of information would you rely on without concern for pesticide companies or lobbying groups being the original sponsor? As an industry employee I honestly don’t know what to believe on certain divisive topics anymore!
