I would favor such a thing if it could be done

I am not sure there is enough money in the world to do it though. The earths natural ecosystems are so complex and unpredictable that I do not know how you could pull it off. You'd basically have to wall off several square miles of area and seal it hermetically. It would have to be populated with all the indiginous animals native to the location you are testing for, as well as native plants and ecosystems. Then you'd have to run the tests for years on end since some of these things take time to build up enough to show up. Of course you'd have to run a seperate test for each and every bioregion where your GMO crop is to be potentially grown. I'm pretty sure you could not do this and make any profit on it..then again, maybe that's a good goal. It sure would make it hard to get management approval and funding to splice some of this stuff together in the first place if they knew they'd have to test so thoroughly before they could sell it.
