    I think you'd actually have a much shorter list of those who are not Monsanto controlled. Like maybe 0

    Try not to feel too bad... I found out a coupla years ago and had to pitch a bunch of my seed. Here's another article that's an oldie but a goodie back when Monsanto bought Seminis Seed, A Call to Boycott Monsanto - Seminis Seeds | Farm Wars. The problem is seed isn't labeled for us as being genetically engineered or not like it is for Europeans. In Europe, they have entire websites that tell their gardeners and consumers which seeds are genetically engineered and which products on their grocery shelves include genetically modified organisms. In my dreams could we have information like that available at our finger tips. I've yet to find any website like us for that kinda information but.... I started my own list a while ago and hit over 250 commonly sold seeds that I tracked back to being genetically modified. I threw up my arms in frustration trying to keep track of new introductions and then I figured out a quick fix that worked for me and maybe it could work for someone else.... buy only certified organic heirloom seed. They can't slip em in on us if the seed's certified. The organic certification specifically excludes genetic modification. I pay a little more for sure but.... I hopefully won't ever have to toss out a boatload of seed ever again.
