Farmfront Board Director
This is a follow-up to our previous July post here.
I want to start by saying I appreciate Jason Koebler’s work on the case of the Chinese seeds, at least for the FOIA request research alone. I encourage you to read it here! He filed over 52 freedom of information requests. The purpose was to get information from the departments of agriculture of every state along with DC and Puerto Rico.
Because FOIA is handled on a state-by-state basis, the results varied. What one state finds too sensitive, another state does not. Some requests can be answered immediately, others can essentially be ignored. The researcher in me is appreciative of this sort of hard work. I don’t know if I would have wanted to replicate it.
So he found stuff, of course! Here are some highlights that I found to be the most important and sometimes just most interesting.
