Frequently Asked Questions:
What different tests test!
There are a variety of procedures
to test if a crop is genetically modified (GM).
Tests either test for the protein synthesized
by the inserted gene, or you can test for the
inserted gene directly. More…
A genetically modified (GM) plant
is, strictly speaking, different from a plant
produced through traditional plant breeding. In
a GM crop, genes are inserted in the plant's DNA
by humans under laboratory conditions. It would
be hard and nearly impossible to introduce these
genes by traditional plant breeding. More…
How does PCR work?
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
is a method to find the genes/DNA that make a
particular plant genetically modified. More...
Today’s grain trade
is changing dramatically. There
is a move from large volumes of commodity grain
to small lots of grain in sealed containers. More...
Specialty grain is grain with desirable
special characteristics compared to "commodity"
grain. For instance, corn with high oil or lysine
content, organic grain, and non-GM grain are all
grains with special characteristics. More...
