Stick It To 'Em!

From the Ethicurean:

Take that, Monsanto: Iowa-based Schillinger Seed has launched “the industry’s first premium non-GMO soybean seed brand” to respond to increased demand by farmers for non-GM seed. New plantings will supply the international market for non-GM soy products and (here’s something you don’t hear from Monsanto) will help farmers improve their bottom lines, as concern about the high costs of GM seed is one factor driving farmers toward the non-GM option.

Here's the article: Schillinger Seed Launches eMerge Genetics

Wahoo for free enterprise! Now if they can keep from being pushed under by the Powers That Be.

(Disclaimer: As much as I believe that (unfermented) soy is not suitable for human or animal consumption, I'm all for anything that that stands against Monsanto.)
