This is the Agribusiness Update...I’m Greg Martin...

A bill has been introduced in the New Mexico Senate that would require the labeling of any food or commercial animal feed that contains more than one-percent genetically modified material by weight. Unlike Proposition 37 - which failed during the 2012 election in California - the measure will not be placed on a ballot for voters in the state. Instead - it will move through the committee process and then - if passed by the New Mexico Senate - will go to the state House.

The Oregon Agricultural Education Foundation (OAEF) is pleased to announce that applications are available for two scholarship programs for the upcoming 2013-2014 academic year. The deadline for applications is March 15, 2013. Scholarship procedures & applications and additional information are available on the Oregon Farm Bureau website.
