At this point, we’ve all got to wonder — did biotech giant Monsanto truly ever cease testing the company’s genetically modified (GM) wheat?
Beginning in 1998, Monsanto ran field trials in 16 states across the nation on a strain of wheat engineered to resist the company’s signature Roundup glyphosate herbicide. Top wheat importing nations around the world, not to mention many wheat farmers, came forward en masse to publicly oppose any GM wheat — sold then or ever. Seeing little profit in a product that obviously no one wanted to buy, Monsanto supposedly ceased its wheat trials in 2005.
By then, the USDA had already approved Monsanto for over 100 field test sites of GM wheat in 16 states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming.
