Article Entitled "Misgivings About How a Weed Killer Affects the Soil"
SIOUX FALLS, SD, September 24, 2013 - (ACCESSWIRE) - Verity Corp (OTCQB: VRTY) (http://www.veritycorp.com/), an agricultural services company offering farmer products and services which focus on soil and crop health through the use of earth friendly crop inputs including proprietary biological media, the use of non-GMO seeds, and the utilization of revitalized water in crop and livestock production, was noted in a New York Times article by Stephanie Strom, entitled "Misgivings About How a Weed Killer Affects the Soil".
The article appeared in the Friday, Sept. 20 issue of the Business Day section in the New York Times reporting on the controversy surrounding the use of the weed killer, Roundup, produced by Monsanto and the genetically modified organisms (GMO) seeds used to produce crops resistant to the effects of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Round Up. With the GMO /non-GMO debate heating up over the past few years and more states voting on whether or not to mandate the labeling foods as GMO or non-GMO in the next few months, the article offered a history of GMO food production, the effects of glyphosate on the soil and what farmers feel about what they have seen in their fields. One picture in the article showed two corn plants exhibiting major differences in the root systems with the caption "The roots appear healthier on the conventionally raised plant." Verity Corp was mentioned a number of times throughout the article and the accompanying pictures.
There is a growing realization by many farmers that the demand for non-GMO food will be increasing. Since Whole Foods announced earlier this year that the company would require all its suppliers to label their food products GMO or non-GMO, it has become increasingly clear that the demand for non-GMO food will necessitate more suppliers to transition back to non-GMO food production to meet that demand.
Verity Corp is committed to assisting farmers in that transition. Through Verity's proprietary program, Verity offers practical solutions in helping to reduce the dependency on chemicals such as fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides and using conventional seeds to rebuild the health of the soil. The company's three facilities in Sioux Falls, SD, Garden City, IA, and Pelham, GA currently work with farms in Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Florida, Mississippi, North Dakota, Ohio, and South Dakota.
