    • Biotechnology and Disease Control in Animals: Social and Ethical Issues 

      Mason, James (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      By quietly researching and developing biotechnological products before the impacts are known, those who have the greatest investments in the present modes of agricultural production could work to resist rather than to ...
    • Biotechnology, Sustainable Agriculture, and the Family Farm 

      Hassebrook, Charles (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      There is a need to make agricultural biotechnology products available to family farms, not only to corporate farms. Agriculture is more sustainably done on the smaller scale of the family farm.
    • Disease Control in Animals 

      Curtis, Stanley (NABC, 1989-02-15)

    • Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Animals 

      Kliebenstein, James B.; Hallam, L. Arne (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      Producers need to have healthy management in order to successfully utilize new products and technology, and appropriate management information needs to accompany the introduction of new technologies.
    • Environmental, Health and Safety Issues 

      Black, Gail (NABC, 1989-02-15)

      Steele, Norman C.; Zimbleman, Robert G. (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      The farm of the future will be more management intensive, and that management will require a wider range of tools—that is technology—to be successful in producing an abundant safe food supply. Genetic manipulation is the ...
    • Herbicide Resistance in Plants 

      LeBaron, Homer M. (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      Economic effects of herbicide resistance. How resistance develops and how its pathways can be used for crop improvement.
    • Impact of Animal Growth 

      Kalter, Robert J. (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      A socially acceptable policy to remove excess capacity in dairy production must be implemented including the removal or price supports. Public income should emphasize education, human services, and social safety nets. ...
    • Impact of Animal Growth Promotants on the Meat Industry 

      Hayenga, Marvin L.; Buhr, Brian L. (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      It is not necessarily size, but management sophistication that really makes a difference in the successful use of PST. Larger, more specialized operations are more likely to make effective use of this relatively sophisticated ...

    • Should the Development of Herbicide-tolerant Plants be a Focus of Sustainable Agriculture Research? 

      Goldburg, Rebecca J. (NABC, 1989-02-15)
      Public sector funding could help the development of weed control alternatives that, unlike herbicide-tolerant plants, the industry has not found potentially profitable.
