Thats a cool discovery, guys probably had lesser odds on winning lottery. Possibly more fuel for the non-gmo fire. I grow RR crop. I will never eat that crop or feed it to family, but will gladly eat the animals consuming it. There is a ton of evidence that direct consumption isn't safe and may have long term efects also second generation efrects possibly. Meaning it could possibly effect male sperm and female eggs. I grow a garden every year for me and family consumption due to the studies having me shy of it. Will RR crops ever go away, and think that answer is no. Farmers are getting record breaking bushels/acre output bc of the advances in science. Now the amount of grain being produced on 100 acres could have took 1000 acres to match it 50 yrs ago. The world is facing a food shortage due to things like population growth and urban development that are decreasing the amount available farmland available. RR crops and other chemical resistant(gmo) crops are desperately needed to face this crisis. Think about all the seeds that are developed in the lab to be bigger and more productive that also fall into the genetically modified category.

I know I went if topic and apologize for possibly hijacking a thread. Just seeing the 2 headed fawn made me think of some of the research being done on farm animals being fed RR grain.

Roundup Ready. Resistant to glyphosate the active ingredient in roundup. They have other chemical resistant seeds hitting the market now that pigweed and other stuff are becoming resistant to glyphosate. Same idealogy on how bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. Another topic though.

Yeah that's another hot topic with Monsanto currently. Don't get caught selling RR seed and not be an authorized distributor. Some farmers have already been blacklisted form Monsanto for getting caught with RR seed when it was being sold without Monsanto knowledge. Some of these same farmers are blaming it on cross pollination, which is logical. By this point you are at the hands of Monsanto. Haven't heard of anyone personally to get into trouble. Some midwest farmers are vocal about their issues with the company and giving details about the disgruntle. Personally it's here to stay and the crops are gonna only become more scientific to tolerate drought and other issues better. Along with being resistant to chemicals that can't eliminate weed competition. The bushels/acre records will continue to be broken year after year. Personally I'm for it. I know it's a tasteful topic for some, but thats my standpoint. If you decide to feed your livestock etc. It's a persons own freedom.
