End of Organic? Report Says GMO Crop Contamination Cannot Be Stopped

A new report finds that the GMO contamination issue is much more serious than previously thought, and the concerned experts couldn’t be more correct.

There have been numerous real-life cases of GMO contamination thus far, though most aren’t well known. One key example rests with Australian farmer Steve Marsh, an organic farmer who sued a neighboring farmer for compensation after his field of non-GMO wheat was contaminated by Michael Baxter’s RoundUp Ready canola seeds. He took his case to the Supreme Court of Western Australia and lost.

Another example of GMO contamination can be seen with an unapproved strain of genetically modified wheat discovered in Oregon. The Roundup Ready strain was nixed in 2005 when global resistance to Monsanto forced the company to stop working on it. It was never approved for use, let along growing and exporting.

  1. As I understand it, GMOs are sterile after one planting. You have to go back and plant again from seeds provided to you by Monsanto. So how is this contaminating fields? For that to happen, the seed must be reproduce-able. That is not what they are doing. They want you to have to re-seed with their seed every year.
    What I do see is a lot of short term damage with the current seed being planted. But it should be gone after one season.
    I think the problem with the court system as we know it as money talks and bull***t walks.
    These people ruling the courts have masters. And those masters dictate the results. In this case the Monsanto people.
