Listen to the Farmers

Previously (Post Feb. 26 - Mar. 11) I referred to "excessive emotion, ignorance

or just plain vindictiveness" as generally being associated with anti-pesticide

attacks. I suppose I should thank Mr. Noel Rajesh (Post Apr. 23 - May 6) for proving

my point.

I feel no need to respond to his spurious statements. Thirty years working with farmers

in Asia has taught me to be tolerant of many things, including extremists.

Suffice it to say, the Cambodian farmer has the right to choose the most appropriate

technology to suit his needs. I certainly cannot judge what should be denied him,

nor I think can Mr. Rajesh.

Yours faithfully,

- C.J. Hare CIBA-GEIGY, Bangkok
