GMO WHEAT LAWSUITS GATHERING NEW GROUND IN KANSAS

The GMO wheat in Oregon had only become known after the farmer spayed the field with the weedkiller glyphosate, more commonly known as Roundup. Most vegetation died, as the farmer intended, but clumps of green wheat stalks kept growing. And apparently had sprouted from grain that was leftover in the field from last year’s crop.

The farmer knew the popular Roundup Ready versions of corn and soybeans were resistant to glyphosate, and wondered if the wheat might be genetically modified as well. He contacted Carol Mallory-Smith, a weed science professor at Oregon State University to ask her opinion.
