Consider it this way: seed companies usually guarantee 98% purity of
their hybrid varieties. This means, they know that some
cross-pollination and contamination occurs among their fields.
If they are using the same level of care for their GMO/non-GMO
isolation, this means that their non-GMO seeds are around 98% non-GMO
too. If they take extra care isolating their non-GMO seeds to avoid
GMO contamination, they might reach 99% or even 99.9% or even 99.99%
but the contamination will still be there... And that 0.01% GMO-seed
in the non-GMO batch will later grow and create more GMO seeds and
contaminate the fields again.
If the worldwide trend against any GMO-contamination continues, U.S.
corn and soya farmers are in trouble... Those U.S. states (are there
any?) and countries who have so far delayed GMO commercialization will
be in a much better position to guarantee 100% GMO-free seeds and
