Nice, if it works. Not sure it will. Like (I believe) cold fusion, I fear it will prove just another feel-good liberal fantasy. A surer solution is to resist GMO's, period.

Organic Ready! Love this! Please succeed. We are doing all we can to eradicate GMO from our world, along with nuclear contamination, factory farms, herbicides, pesticides (all the "cides), and promote meditation, compassion, expansion of higher consciousness!

Good news. I haven't purchased a single ear of corn at any store this year. No organic corn growers here, so no corn. Love to see Monsanto crash and burn big time.
