    Yes. I do. So why not listen to someone who works directly with GMOs?
    I can assure you that Monsanto has never sued anyone for accidental contamination. If there was cross pollination, chances are neither Monsanto nor the farmers of the two different fields would ever know.

    Rdewitt is also a Monsanto employee (as is Ben). Check out their facebook page and you will see all of the familiar paid Monsanto faces.

    Really?!! High-paid lawyers outwitted a small farmer and that's proof he infringed upon Monsanto's patents. BeeEss. Monsanto does not have a reputation of honesty. They have a reputation for sinking billions into getting their way, manipulating courts and government.

    Somehow, this answer does not quell my agitation with the pedaling poisonous products. Patenting life forms used to be illegal until the manipulative tactics and MONEY were thrown at the obstacle. Monsanto makes those obstacles magically disappear.

    Farmers should not be sued for planting seeds at ALL. Nor should they be run out of business for collecting seeds. THAT is farming. For Monsanto to rewrite the ritual we've used to FEED ourselves for millions of years is absurdly evil. You should be ashamed of yourself for defending this practice. This site was created, quite obviously, in an attempt to dispel any rumors or bad press you've deserved over the past few years, but let me assure you, you will not win. We have the power of rapid information sharing and the truth is out and spreading like wildfire. Like a non-patended natural weed that is immune to your products... a super weed that is a direct result of overuse of Monsanto products.

    This is one of the biggest lies the anti movement uses. No one gets sued for seeds simply getting into their field. If you read the legal documentation you will see that there was strong evidence that the farmer was using the seeds intentionally. Things like spraying glyphosate on the entire crop which you would not do unless you knew your whole crop was RR.
