Comments: GMO Wheat Postponed

The one thing that bugs me about this stuff is the intellectual-property angle. If you buy this seed from Monsanto and plant a crop, you're not allowed to save any seed for the next season: you have to buy a quantity that passes muster with the company, and a quantity of Roundup that they consider appropriate for that usage level. And God forbid you should have wind and your neighbor on the north should find himself with a smattering of RR crops - it's your fault for exercising inadequate controls.

That, more than any overblown health considerations, is enough to make me distrust the stuff.
