Fields of Fear


  • McKinney, Luther C.


Fear, confusion and frustration have eroded the public's confidence in the wholesomeness of our nation's food supply and how it is produced. However, it is not too late for segments of the agricultural sector to join together to restore confidence. To do so agriculture must do three things: develop their position on environmental policy, develop their position on food safety policy and articulate both to strengthen the confidence of public policymakers and consumers.
