Monsanto Still Testing GM Wheat

by Melissa Melton, TruthStream Media:

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.

    The wheat crops here in Oregon represent upwards to 3 Billion in sales to the local and regional economies. With the discovery of this GM strain in the yields for this years soft white crop (which is exceedingly popular in both the near and far east china immediately cancelled their contracts. By in large the majority of the worry now is that the pollen from this strain has escaped to infect other fields not to mention the local animal and insect populations. The chickens ,it seems, are coming home to roost.
