Forage Genetics International has decided not to sell herbicide-tolerant genetically modified alfalfa this spring.

This has drawn both praise and a sigh of relief from the National Farmers Union.

The NFU staged protests across the country, including right outside of Perth-Wellington MP Gary Schellenberger’s office opposing GM alfalfa.

The group calls it a solution in search of a problem.
