Recent Federal debate concerning the banning of GMCs or genetically modified crops has the state's farmers concerned for their livelihood. Farmers growing two of the state's biggest crops, soybeans and corn, rely almost exclusively, 90 percent, on GMCs. Public meetings continue to be held by U.S. Fish and Wildlife representatives concerning the planting on refuge lands; currently only 1 percent of the 4 million acres of national wildlife refuge land is cultivated.
