It's coming!

"Monsanto’s announcement of increased research into genetically modified wheat has been welcomed by major US wheat industry players, adding fuel to the ongoing debate about the crop’s commercialization.

The agricultural giant announced it would seek to introduce its drought and pest-resistant technologies for wheat when it bought out WestBred last week – a company that specializes in wheat germoplasm, the crop’s genetic material.

Currently there are no varieties of GM wheat commercially available anywhere in the world."
