Harmonious Coexistance

Here’s a catchy tune – about coexistence! Back when genetically engineered canola was new in Canada, there was a conversation between two farmers – one who grew organic canola, and the other, GE. That conversation turned into this song:

As an added bonus, two of the performers are weed scientists, and the third is a former editor of Weed Technology. (H/T Andrew Kniss)
I think the next time I give a talk about the spillover effects of different farming systems, I will just show this video. What do you think?

  1. Makes you want to sit back with a good organic Irish beer and sing along 🙂
    This is a great way to create awareness. I am just not believing in co-exstitance, much like the song says(sings)the genetically engineered crops will interfere with the organic crops.
