Farmer wants Nort Dakota to ensure protection of foundation wheat seed stocks

(June 13, 2002 - CropChoice news) - Todd Leake fears that genetically engineered wheat could contaminate North Dakota`s pure seed stocks, even before it`s available commercially for planting. He fears that wheat which Monsanto genetically engineered to resist the herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) could appear in the conventional varieties that the state`s farmers grow, because North Dakota State University is under contract with Monsanto to conduct nursery trials on the Roundup Ready wheat.</p><p><a href="http://www.cropchoice.com/leadstry.asp?RecID=748">CropChoice.com News</a>
