Hello all,

We received a message today from a concerned citizen asking an interesting question that I feel would make for some great discussion.

Could you explain to me why GMO corn, considering it pollinates non GMO corn, like my sweet corn,  is not considered an invasive species

 

Thoughts? Comments?

They're not going to like this, but it's because it doesn't harm the economy (though arguments could be made), the environment (any more than any other corn monoculture, anyway), or human health (no, really, it doesn't).

Really, it's not a very useful question that's just guaranteed to start an argument with no satisfactory conclusion. :/
