Jackson County's ban on GMO crops is set to take effect on June 6th, unless the federal judge hearing a suit against it blocks it.
Another vote on a GMO ban, in Benton County (Corvallis), failed this week, by a wide margin. Benton County is home to Oregon State University, which performs research on GMO crops.
And OSU's agriculture dean, Dr. Dan Arp, sat on a task force reporting on GMO agriculture just last year.
Dr. Arp joins us with details of the report and the issues covered.
