Food and Farm Canola Conflict
In this Feb. 1, 2012, photo Tomas Endicott talks about the issues surrounding the canola crop at the Willamette Valley at the Willamette Biomass Processors plant in Rickreall, Ore., which crushes canola and other seeds to make biofuel and/or food grade canola oil. Some farmers want to grow more canola because it's a profitable alternative to grass seed and wheat. But other farmers who grow specialty vegetable seeds worry about contamination from canola.
