GMO Defense help cornSubmitted by DEEKEY on Sat, 02/02/2013 - 11:25
I'm a city gal, new at this so don't laugh at me. I have a farm sitting in the middle of hundreds of acres of GMO corn. I buy organic seeds and want my food GMO free. Found dark corn kernels in the white sweet corn so stopped planting in past few years. Can't find a thing about this on line but just using my noodle, came up with this. Will it fly? What if I were to start my sweet, organic corn indoors a month and 1/2 before the fields around me are planted. Will that mean my corn will pollinate from sister stalks before the poison crops around me get to the point of pollination? If so, would I be avoiding the contamination and seeds can be saved from the crop in late fall that would remain organic? This is too simple not to have been tried. Anyone know?
