"The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced today that test results of plant samples from an Oregon farm indicate the presence of genetically engineered (GE) glyphosate-resistant wheat plants. Further testing by USDA laboratories indicates the presence of the same GE glyphosate-resistant wheat variety that Monsanto was authorized to field test in 16 states from 1998 to 2005.
APHIS launched a formal investigation after being notified by an Oregon State University scientist that initial tests of wheat samples from an Oregon farm indicated the possible presence of GE glyphosate-resistant wheat plants. There are no GE wheat varieties approved for sale or in commercial production in the United States or elsewhere at this time."
The seed supply seems affected from wheat to corn to soybeans. You can find some non GMO in every GMO seed lot and you can find some GMO in every non GMO seed lot.
So what, isn't this OK? I don't think so. I think we should have preserved our pure breeding lines and I am not sure we have done that. I think we are going to need them in the near future, do you>
What do you think? I am open to new topics, this one is getting old.
