Natural Society reported on organic farmer Steve Marsh’s dilemma with GMO cross pollination of his organic farms a while back, but some shocking news has recently bubbled to the surface about Monsanto’s involvement.
One of the secrets of monopolizing Monsanto is that it reportedly contributed big bucks to the defense of the Australian farmer whose GMO canola crop infected Steve Marsh’s organic fields. If you aren’t privy, a ruling by the Supreme Court of Western Australia had no sympathy for Steve Marsh’s plight, and sided in favor of Michael Baxter and Monsanto.
“An organic farmer in Western Australia lost his bid to claim damages from a neighbour after genetically modified (GMO) canola seed heads blew on to his property, causing him to lose his licence as an organic grower.”
Not only did Steve Marsh lose his organic certification, but he was going against another farmer who he thought someone came up with AUD 800,000 in legal fees on his own. To add insult to injury, the judge even ordered Marsh to pay the GM farmer AUD 800,000. So Marsh not only lost his organic farm, and lost his case, but he then had to pay his neighbor for contaminating his crops with his GM seed.
When Marsh appealed the decision, the court ordered Baxter to disclose any financial arrangements with Monsanto and the Pastoralists and Graziers Association, of which Baxter is a member. His lawyer denied that Baxter has received any questionable payments from either entity.
Only after a court order did Monsanto reveal that it had provided assistance towards Baxter’s legal defense, refusing to disclose exactly how much the corporation contributed.
Of the AUD 800,000 that Baxter magically came up with to win over Marsh in court, how much do you think Monsanto provided? More information will be reported as it becomes available. One thing is for certain though, Monsanto and its dirty secrets will always be exposed.

This is only an issue because we have arbitrarily decided that genetically engineered crops are somehow non-organic. It’s a distinction based on our perception. There is no reason GM crops can’t be grown using organic methods.
There is no need for farmers to purchase seed yearly, either.
Corn farmers routinely purchase seed every year because they grow hybrid crops. Farmers will do whatever is the most profitable for them. No one is forcing farmers to enter into licensing agreements with biotech companies. If farmers choose to, that’s their right and I suspect they do so because it’s more profitable.
No they are contaminating all of the natural environment then suing other farmers and destroying them financially with corrupt judges on the take.
“All of the natural environment “? Let’s dispense with the hyperbole shall we? What specifically is being contaminated and with what?
As for lawsuits, that’s a business practices issue. I don’t see that as having anything to do specifically with GMOs themselves. If you think the laws need to be changed,we can have that discussion but that’s not a topic for science.
Hey, keep, “earning,” that agri-money defending criminals.
So you don’t have anything of relevance to contribute…
You seem to relate well with mirrors.
If you want to have a conversation, I’m happy to. If you’re just here to play immature games, we’re done.
Oh okay, “Skeptologist!”
At least he’s consistent…
What about the organic farmers that buy patented seed?
How does that work, Anna?
then the organic farmer’s discussion is with the particular patent holder. Do producers of organic, patented, seed sue for patent infringement if the seed or pollen is found in an adjacent non-seed-purchasing farm at a rate above 1% ?
I doubt it. But none of the GM patent holders do either.
then of course, the patent holder has no need to check fields – it’s a trust system. For GM patent holders, as the cross-germination continues (as in Canada, in the Midwest) soon no-one will need to buy their seeds anyway.
Sorry, but your post makes no sense.
But let’s rewind the agricultural clock back to the 1930s. Are you familiar with Henry A. Wallace? Or the Pioneer Hi-Bred corn company? Farmers started buying patented seeds 85 years ago to get better crops.
So your seed-saving meme is just a meme.
not by name, but yes I am aware of the presence of patented seed in the ag. market for decades. In fact, some of those varieties were developed with grants. Cornell was a leader in apple development. How often were farmers in previous decades sued for seed-saving from patented crops (a rate would be helpful) ? Re: the second portion of the comment, gm canola has been cross-pollinating with canola in Canada (effectively eradicating the organic canola sector) and volunteer gm canola has been found growing in the midwest (and some of these weeds are both Roundup and Liberty tolerant). To wit – who needs to buy seed from a gm patent holder when the traits are increasingly available for free ?
“To wit – who needs to buy seed from a gm patent holder when the traits are increasingly available for free ?”
Put your thinking cap on, dear. If the patent’s expired, knock yourself out.
what a kindness – now that countries are facing a challenge dealing with pesticide tolerant gm weeds …
Awesome! I guess this is where you share your extensive agricultural knowledge and give me a lecture about weed resistance, right?
You wanna tell me about the 27 different WSSA herbicide groups? I’m sure that as a regular blog reader, you’re fully qualified to tell me which one(s) I can use when on which crop, right?
I am actually not a regular reader of this blog; I happened onto the piece. Perhaps, given your extensive knowledge, you can explain how to deal with crop contamination, volunteer crops as weeds, and solutions to dealing with cross-pollination with existing weeds for free and in a manner that is low to no impact. After all, the potential down-stream problems and reasonable solutions are part of a considered evaluation of any new technology.
in Canada, cross pollination has produced canola resistant to Roundup, Liberty, and Pursuit (ie 3, not 2 pesticides).
I think you mean Beyond not Pursuit. Pursuit is for legumes, like soy, peas, etc, not canola.
Pursuit can also be used effectively on wild brassica weeds – except increasingly, in Canada, on canola volunteers. Canola can cross-pollinate with brassica weeds.
What kind of “crop contamination”?
you can explain how to deal with crop contamination
Dont understand? contaminated with what?
volunteer crops as weeds
Same way that farmers have been dealing with volunteers pre GMO, use a herbicide that the volunteer is vulnerable to or use tillage, simples.
What are these downstream problems that dont exist for conventional crops?
there is some evidence that gm crops and their volunteer relatives are more likely to retain these traits over generations ; ie, this is unlike most hybrids (conventional). the particular trait retained in these volunteers and potentially the wild plants they cross pollinate with is for the most widely used herbicide.
In Switzerland, gm canola volunteers must be eradicated by hand or other herbicides especially in train beds where weeds can create a safety hazard.
I don’t think you even know what a volunteer weed even is…
A volunteer is just the crop self seeding, if you grow Oats, the next year you will have a volunteer oat problem, if you grow canola, the next year you will have a volunteer canola problem, same with wheat, and most other crops. The only way to avoid this problem is to use herbicides, tillage, or don’t rotate your crops (bad idea). Volunteers are just spilled or dropped crop seeds, that is why you mostly find them on railway tracks and in farmers fields.
most widely used herbicide
It is the most widely used herbicide in Agriculture but not the most widely used herbicide for noxious weed control. That would be 2-4-D or Banvel.
yes, I do know what a volunteer is, and a volunteer weed is a crop sourced volunteer that is not where it’s wanted (ie, thus a weed). (Why would you assume otherwise ?) GM canola is not accepted in Switzerland; obviously its appearance along train routes indicates spill from pass-through delivery.
and why should municipalities etc. be placed in a position to use stronger pesticides, purchase pesticides to clean up a weed problem that has a traceable (predictable) cause ? (it’s a bit similar to the introduction of what becomes an invasive species)
Why would you assume otherwise ?
Because you are talking like this is a new problem that has never existed before.
GM canola is not accepted in Switzerland;
But Clearfield Canola is grown all over Europe, it has been mutated to be resistant to the herbicide Beyond (Imazamox), you know the herbicide that you keep confusing with Pursuit.
ts appearance along train routes indicates spill from pass-through delivery.
Nope, because Europe does not allow whole canola seeds into there region from North America, it must be crushed first and sold as oil or meal.
be placed in a position to use stronger pesticides, purchase pesticides to clean up a weed problem
Hmmm? They dont need stronger herbicides they can use the same herbicides that they have always used even before GMO came out on the market.
it’s a bit similar to the introduction of what becomes an invasive species
Not at all the same. invasive species reproduce in the wild, canola does not. Neither do any other field crops, Note: some peppers on some tropical islands do reproduce on there own.
of course it has existed before; of course cross-pollination happens (and always has); what you missed is that gm crops tend to retain their traits and pass them to non-gm plants. the trait will more likely survive, adding a new level to the problem.
Pursuit is used in soya fields against wild brassicas (mustard, radish) and volunteer canola. here, check the label: https://agro.basf.ca/East/Products/Related_Files/Pursuit%20Technology%20Sheet.pdf
you can’t use the same herbicides (Roundup etc.) on volunteer gm canola.
gm canola cross pollinates with other varieties of gm canola (so in Canada and Idaho, volunteer gm canola has been found that is resistant to both Roundup and Liberty and Pursuit) Brassica’s cross pollinate with brassicas; gm canola is a brassica, so are wild mustard and wild radish.
the problem has existed before but gm crops tend to retain their introduced characteristic over generations – thus, distinct gm canola varieties, volunteers in Idaho and Canada, have cross pollinated and now have resistance to both Roundup and Liberty and in Canada, to Pursuit as well.
The fact remains that there is volunteer gm canola growing along train tracks in Switzerland. You can research this.
The “same herbicides” are not sufficient for eradicating crops that were designed to withstand them, not their volunteers. What Switzerland uses for eradicating the crops will be handled by Switzerland; however, their options are limited by a number of considerations AND the illegal introduction of gm canola by whatever method.
Brassicas cross pollinate with both domesticated and wild brassicas (like wild radish and wild mustard); gm canola is a brassica. Gm crops tend to retain the introduced characteristic; there is clearly (and predicted) potential for gm traits from canola to be introduced into both cultivated and weedy members of the brassica family. Pursuit, according to the label, is used against wild radish, wild mustard, and some types of gm canola volunteers. The latter use is increasingly unavailable: https://agro.basf.ca/East/Products/Related_Files/Pursuit%20Technology%20Sheet.pdf
No, I have pointed to the ability of gm plants to more successfully rteain their gm traits over generations.
The label for Pursuit states that it is effective against wild mustard and some kinds of volunteer canola (gm). Argue with BASF’s claims, not me.
You can easily confirm the growth of gm canola in and alongside train beds in Switzerland by using the online search feature.
“The same” means the new generation (Roundup, etc.), and these cannot be used effectively. Why should Switzerland be placed in the position of eradicating (using what ever method) plants that grow from seed that is illegal in Switzerland ?
Again, gm crops are more likely to retain their characteristics over several generations than conventional hybrids. Canola is a brassica; brassicas cross-pollinate. Gm canola has cross-pollinated with itself to produce volunteer canola resistant to both Roundup, Liberty, and in Canada resistant to Roundup, Liberty, and Pursuit (which is used to clear fields of some kinds of volunteer canola – according to BASF’s label – and wild mustard). Canola, a brassica, can cross pollinate with wild mustard, a brassica.
You are truly out of your mind if you think the seed, which is bred to withstand huge amounts of glyphosate is organic. Third grade has an empty desk for you wherever you live.
Do you expect me to take your seriously with that kind of juvenile attitude?
Do you expect us to take you serious with that kind of blatant ignorance? The purpose of Monsanto’s genetic modification of its crops is to allow them to spray as much toxic pesticide as they can without “damaging” the crop. That is their own admission that you can research for yourself… in third grade.
Nonsense. You know nothing about agriculture.
Neither do you, JoeTroll
Explain the Bt trait, genius. Why would a company develop a plant trait that eliminates the need for insecticide application?
Yep, that proves you’re full of crap and painfully ignorant.
with that kind of blatant ignorance?
Herbicide tolerant crops are only tolerant to herbicide not totally resistant, More than about 18oz per acre and you will start killing the crop, so stop calling others ignorant when you have no idea what you are talking about.
Is that from the Monsanto pamphlet? Screw off troll.
What do you think is a, “huge amount of glyphosate”?
When was the last time you visited a modern farm? I’m guessing never.
You mean like maize is to Atrazine?
Here’s a comment from World Health dot net. about the dirty tricks Monsatan will pull. I’d put nothing past them. But on the upside “WE outnumber “THEM”, and “Them”are getting tied up in courts around the world. Even there shills can’t help them now!
014-11-20 01:42:09 – GMO Industry Harassment Tactics against Researchers Exposed. Strong Correlation between GM-food Consumption and the Deterioration of health in the US.
Post annotated by Greentea :
This post was moved from the category WorldHealth.net.
Once upon a time there was real science, documented and confirmed with publications in prestigious journals. When, in health-related fields, we leaned about the master DNA/RNA and it’s telomeres, how the endocrine system connects it all, and embryonic stem cells, there were only Ooohs, and Aaahs, and we felt privileged when getting a glimpse at God’s ingenuity and logic that allowed a mere 4 letters (the 4 bases, guanine (G), adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), reoccurring in specific patterns) to describe all living things.
Then industry, when it didn’t like published risk-finding data, triggered orchestrated campaigns of harassment against the scientists. Examples from just the last few years include Ignacio Chapela, a then untenured Assistant Professor at Berkeley, whose paper on GM contamination of maize in Mexico (Quist and Chapela, 2001) sparked an intensive internet-based campaign to discredit him. This campaign was reportedly masterminded by the Bivings Group, a public relations firm specializing in viral marketing – and frequently hired by Monsanto. The distinguished career of biochemist Arpad Pusztai, came to an effective end when he attempted to report his contradictory findings on GM potatoes Delborne, 2008. Even threats of physical violence have been used, most recently against Andres Carrasco, Professor of Molecular Embryology at the University of Buenos Aires, whose research (Paganelli et al. 2010) identified health risks from glyphosate.
But this is really nothing new. Here in the US Berkeley professor Peter Duesberg, formerly Max Planck Institute, Germany, discoverer of oncogenes, was maligned when he dared to expose the pseudo-science of HIV/AIDS and which – obviously THE major reason for being attacked – also threatened the multi-billion antiviral drug business.
Much of the dirty – special interest-dictated – business became obvious again when prof. Giles Seralini of Caen University, France, published the results of GMO-fed animals, and observed organ malfunctions, tumors, and cancers: view the original pictures athttp://www.DrHans.org .
“BUT” – – the opposition will proclaim – – “this paper was retracted.” Yes, BUT not by the author.“ One year after publication a new editor at the journal retracted the paper, claiming complaints about irregularities – from using the wrong animals, to mistakes about the length of the study, and more.
After a lengthy and rigorous review, none of the complaints were confirmed – – no mistakes, no wrong animals used; the same animals had been used by Monsanto (from where much of the complaints originated), and when, in a last ditch attempt, the Monsanto people – – those whose consciousness is apparently unaffected when thousands of farmers in India committed suicide (due to financial distress, caused by GM crop failures) expressed concern regarding the ethical treatment of laboratory animals, everybody had only one major question on their minds:
So, what was going on here?
The answer came with the disclosure that the new editor came from the GMO industry.
“PHONY?” – – we, totally, agree! And hundreds of scientists signed an “open letter,” supporting the paper’s author, Dr. Seralini of Caen University in France. Read the open letter, and you’ll see where truly questionable ethics originated – – – with the GMO industry:http://www.independentsciencenews.org/health/seralini-and-science-nk603-rat-study-roundup .
In a last-ditch effort the GMO people complained that the laboratory animals used were cancer-prone. Response: What do they think people are, cancer-prone, or cancer-resistant?
Animal studies are done in several general stages – – like our longevity studies, performed as Roosevelt U, Chicago, where we achieved average life-span increases of nearly 100% – – to a) get a general feeling about the modalities involved, b) more focused on the modalities involved, and, finally, c) precise studies, following established guidelines, to confirm previous findings. Find more about anti-aging research, longevity studies, telomeres, and sytem cells at http://www.DrHansKugler.com , and in (e-book) “LIFE-Long Health: learn how to Control your Genes to stay Young with Age”, now available as health education project for only $ 1.99. How to order, go to http://www.DrHans.org .
Despite the fact that no mistakes had been made, did the (GMO) editor re-instate Seralini’s paper? No! Most likely because, under those conditions, a paper had little chance of passing because it would have to go through an especially rigorous review process, just so that nobody could object to it if it passed. But professor Seralini is not the kind of guy who’d give up. He actually re-submitted to a top Springer Journal, “Environment Sciences Europe”, it underwent the most rigorous review (intentionally so tough that nobody could object if it passed) – – – and it passed with flying colors, and was re-published:http://www.enveurope.com/content/26/1/14
But the story doesn’t end here, with a victory for true science! Further discoveries about GMOs are scary as hell. Here are just a few new research findings:

Responding to claims from the GM industry and some journalists, and commentators that there is a “scientific consensus” that GM foods and crops were generally found safe for human and animal health and the environment, scientists responded, calling these claims “misleading”, adding, “This claimed consensus on GMO safety does not exist.” – – -http://www.independentsciencenews.org/news/no-scientific-consensus-on-safety-of-genetically-modified-organisms
As probably everybody knows by now, Russia – just a few weeks ago – – banned all GMOs.http://www.worldhealth.net/forum/thread/100412/russia-bans-all-gmos-joins-the-ever-g/?page=1#post-100412 )

In the light of all these findings about the risks of GMOs, how can it be that – – like in California, and Oregon – – so many people were so ignorant to vote against their own right to know what is in their foods? Sadly enough, science education in America is lacking; so it s easier for true BS-sers to pull one over on them with bogus and “El Toro Poo Poo” arguments.
The same approach has been applied by the special – oil, coal, gas – interest in respect to Climate Change. GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL; so real that the carbon industry has spent $ 543 million over the past years to plant BOGUS arguments, and blow smoke up your YOU KNOW WHAT to confuse the issues, and prevent you from thinking NON-CARBON US CLEAN ENERGY PROJECTS. http://drexel.edu/now/news-media/releases/archive/2013/December/Climate-Change .
Since there is much interest in our last post – – Genetically engineered crops, glyphosate and the deterioration of health in the United States of America – – we kept the text:

A huge increase in the incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases has been reported in the United States (US) over the last 20 years. Similar increases have been seen globally. The herbicide glyphosate was introduced in 1974 and its use is accelerating with the advent of herbicide-tolerant genetically engineered (GE) crops. Evidence is mounting that glyphosate interferes with many metabolic processes in plants and animals and glyphosate residues have been detected in both. Glyphosate disrupts the endocrine system and the balance of gut bacteria, it damages DNA and is a driver of mutations that lead to cancer. In the present study, US government databases were searched for GE crop data, glyphosate application data and disease epidemiological data. Correlation analyses were then performed on a total of 22 diseases in these time-series data sets. The Pearson correlation coefficients are highly significant between glyphosate applications and hypertension, stroke, diabetes prevalence, diabetes incidence, obesity, lipoprotein metabolism disorder, Alzheimer’s, senile dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, autism , inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal infections, end stage renal disease, acute kidney failure,
cancers of the thyroid, liver, bladder, pancreas, kidney, and myeloid leukaemia.
The Pearson correlation coefficients are highly significant between the percentage of GE corn and soy planted in the US and hypertension, stroke, diabetes prevalence, diabetes incidence, obesity, lipoprotein metabolism disorder, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, hepatitis C, end stage renal disease, acute kidney failure, cancers of the thyroid, liver, bladder, pancreas, kidney, and myeloid leukaemia. The significance and strength of the correlations show that the effects
of glyphosate and GE crops on human health should be further investigated

Now the other side of the coin!
The Jon Entine Takedown
It appears that “justice” is for sale. A famer who is trying to grow an non-GMO crop has it polluted by a farmer growing a GMO crop, and somehow the poor fellow who had his crop contaminated is the one at fault. No properly functionin mind could come to that conclusion.
Organic is more than just growing without pesticides, it also means to those who are buying it that it is a non-GMO crop. While folks like Skeptologist may feel there is no difference between GMO and non-GMO, he has the personal right to eat whatever he chooses, but he does not, nor does anyone else, have the right to deny other people to seek the kind of food they wish to ingest even if there is no difference between GMO and non-GMO. The right to choose extends way beyond a woman and a pregnancy.
I agree that the story, as presented by Christina Sarich, sounds terrible. But having read enough of her articles, I suspect there is more to this incident than she has bothered to write about. It pays to be skeptical when reading her stories.
I see Bobo approves That’s all I need!! Where Bobo goes nothin grows!!I
I’m done askin why??
So why Christina was I Censored??
I’m done askin why??
Which you decided to state in the form of a question? Excuse me, but your comment makes no sense to me. Literally. I don’t know what you’re saying.
We’ve been growing identity-preserved crops crops in the U.S. for about a century.
The way it works is the person that stands to gain economically from growing the identity-preserved crop is the one that is responsible to deliver it to the buyer in the agreed form.
You make it sound like poor organic farmers are having their crops polluted, which isn’t the least bit true.
I grow seed soybeans for a seed company. I don’t want the inferior pollen from organic, heritage soybeans to reduce the value of my crop. But I know I’m responsible for delivering what I contracted for, so I don’t whine on the interwebs about it.
Organic means higher prices for nothing materially more, to me.
Actually, I’m sure Mr. Marsh’s inferior organic plants polluted Mr. Baxter’s superior GM crop! The wind blows both ways.
The only solution left for the little guy is to kill the executives at Monsanto.
They would just hire more evil psychopath executives.
Itsa numbers game…we always win.
I wish more people thought like you.
Who is, “we”?
Are you a representative for some group?
Are you a farmer?
“…boys forget what their country means by just reading, ‘the land of the free,’ in history books. Then they get to be men, they forget even more. Liberty is too precious a thing to be buried in books….Men should hold it up in front of them every single day…and say, ‘I’m free to THINK AND TO SPEAK. My ancestors couldn’t. I can. And my children will.’…” -Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
But I’ll bet you’re the kind of person that wants people’s firearms taken away, too.
Pathetic American, if you even live here.
My great-grandparents on my dad’s side immigrated here from Sweden in the 1880s. My great-great grandparents on my mom’s side immigrated here from Scotland and the Netherlands in the 1850s.
So what do you want to tell me, sport?
Seriously, what is wrong with you, posting that people should be executed? Not enough mental health resources in your area, or what?
Monsanto decided everyone should suffer when they corrupted our federal agencies to allow them to profit from selling poison.
I have no mercy for people who poison me and my family.
You need help.
You are a sycophant. The boots need licking…
Being poisoned? You think that intentionally poisoning people and corrupting the government to get away with it is normal?
Mike Adams, is that you?
Do you realize it is illegal to make death threats?
Do you understand rhetoric and free speech?
Do you understand death threats are not protected speech?
Do you understand the English language?
Vagaries in the arts of English confound the simple-minded.
This is a nightmare of epic proportions. We live in the scariest of times. True evil has taken over the planet. Everything is upside down and backwards for humanity and our future. I doubt we have 500 more years in our future.
Funny how the organic genetically modifying scientist in the labs banned GMO in their cafeteria @ work… Silly little rabbit. GMO’s are for sheep.
Compared to a grain of pollen a grain of sand is a heavy particle but I have heard of sand from the Sahara being carried by the wind across the Atlantic to give red sunsets in Texas. If sand can be carried thousands of miles so can pollen.
I can answer the question as to why the judge gave the ruling he did, assuming he was “ex” (?) military. If he was “ex” military he is STILL subject to following orders from his SECRET chain of command. In other words, the trial was a scam because the judge had already been told how to rule and he wasn’t going to disobey orders. Kay Griggs, the ex- wife of a very powerful Colonel in the Marines (Oliver North level Colonel, NOT an ordinary Colonel) has been a whistleblower on this for years.
How many lies do people tell today.
Ahhh, Monsanto…the anus of capitalism.
But Natural Society that has dozens of web links to sketchy products and gets money from ad click-throughs is pure as the rain?
Ever seen Mercola’s mansion, sport?
Where in the article do they speak of Mercola? I understand there are issues on both sides, but let’s stay on topic, Joey.
Did not Safe Food Foundation contribute a full $750,000.00 to Marsh just to Sue Mr. Baxter in the first place?
Oh, I see, that’s OK, but not for Mr. Baxter, who’s only crime was growing a legal crop in the manner that it is customary to do and following all published precautions.
If there is any justice Monsanto will be tried from crimes against humanity, and Mother Nature someday. I bet they have little weasels all over the world sprinkling their toxic GMO seeds everywhere along with releasing their GMO lab animal freaks into the wilds!
