Funds from the National Organic Certification Cost Share Program (NOCCSP) are available through CDFA’s State Organic Program (SOP).... It increases the need for agricultural workers to be more highly trained. Other applications remain contentious, such as the use of genetically modified ( GM ) crops created by inserting genes from other organisms.

This is in sharp contrast to the traditional or peasant agricultural economies, where production is still dependent primarily upon the natural resources of land and water, family effort, and little, if any, reproducible capital. Since the supply of these traditional factors of production is not readily expandable, the output of farm products is not very responsive to favorable prices The Biotechnology Revolution One reason is the growing use of cereal substitutes in livestock feed rations. Another is the collapse of the livestock sector in the transition countries, which led to reduced demand for feed in these countries. A third factor is the shift of meat production to poultry, which are much more efficient converters of feed than other livestock species ref.: Urban Farming (At Issue) According to the CDC, it is possible that the virus could mutate into a human strain of influenza virus.
