New Monsanto non-GMO strains of produce are a ploy to confuse public between hybrid and GMO
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The term hybrid, which you'll often see in seed catalogs, refers to a plant variety developed through specific, controlled cross-breeding between two parent plants. Usually, these are naturally compatible within the same species. This is the kind of hybridization that takes place naturally in the wild. All plant breeders who respect Mother Nature simply "steer the process" to control the outcome. This not a GMO; in other words, this normal hybrid would not be the result of genetic "engineering," or modification, of organisms for agricultural profits at the risk of human health…
