Regarding a Proposed National Leafy Green Marketing Agreement
The establishment of a nationwide LGMA
by the USDA similar to those currently implemented in California
and Arizona would bring about negative environmental consequences
including the degradation of soil, water and wildlife habitat
wherever leafy greens are grown. Until specific areas in the
agreement are clarified, the scope is narrowed to processed
greens, and a ceiling is placed on "supermetrics"
that go beyond the requirements of the LGMA, this agreement
should not go national.
