The portrait that emerges is one in which a shrinking clientele of farmers, level or falling public funding for ag research, and the rise of molecular biology and biotechnology result in university agricultural scientists turning to industry as a key client group and source of research support.
Buttel and Goldberger found that between 1979 and 1996 the research spending by the average scientist decreased from $134,000 to $112,000 per year when adjusted for inflation.
To study ties between ag college researchers and industry, Buttel and Goldberger looked at the percentage of faculty who owned equity positions in private companies, received private industry support, or consulted with, communicated with or advised private firms.

Researchers with the Program on Agricultural Technology Studies found that cash grain operations and large farms were most likely to plant genetically modified crops, and that smaller farms were more likely to de-adopt GM crops between 1999 and 2000.
These smaller Wisconsin producers seem to be taking a pragmatic approach - they're dropping GM crops because these varieties aren't making money for them, according to PATS associate director Fred Buttel, a rural sociologist at the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
Buttel and doctoral candidate Lucy Chen surveyed Wisconsin producers on their use of Bt corn (which contains a protein that's toxic to cornborers), HT (herbicide-tolerant) corn and HT soybeans.

Rural sociology is a field of sociology associated with the study of life in small towns and the country.
Rural society is faced with various problems including the environmental degradation and overuse of water resources, the establishment and inadequate regulation of toxic waste dumps, and poverty.
The loss of rural population to urban areas is also an area of concern, especially in northern states, such as North Dakota.Fred Buttel asks, "Will we witness a further erosion of commitment to improving the livelihoods of the rural poor?"

"I do not think this is the start of a general backlash in the U.S.," said Fred Buttel, a rural sociologist at the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
Most Americans are "oblivious" to the debate, Buttel said, and are unaware that about 75 percent of processed foods already have some GM content.
The Mendocino County initiative passed because there is no GM-type farming going on there anyway, and the initiative was only designed to keep it out, he said.

These smaller Wisconsin producers seem to be taking a pragmatic approach — they're dropping GM crops because these varieties aren't making money for them, according to PATS associate director Fred Buttel, a rural sociologist at the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
Use of all three GM crop varieties has tended to be most common among cash grain producers and producers with large acreages of cropland, Buttel says.
Foods that may have contained StarLink corn have been recalled in the United States, and Japan, a major corn importer, sharply cut its imports of U.S. corn after tests revealed traces of StarLink corn in domestic food and animal feed products.
