GMO’s, or ‘Genetically Modified Organisms‘ are plants, the DNA of which has been modified using genetic engineering techniques, to resist pests and agents causing harm to plants, and to improve the growth of these plants to assist in farmers efficiency. New Mexico uses GMO crops primarily for Corn for animal feed purposes, some Alfalfa, and some Cotton. Although this is a very small amount of what New Mexican farmers grow, mandatory labeling of GMO foods would cost the farmers and people of The Land of Enchantment greatly in taxes & labeling costs.
