I read an opinion on the pollen drift issue early last summer in a flier I
picked up at the University of Illinois extension. It was the opinion of a
Crop Science Prof. Nafziger (sp?) who indicated that pollen drift from GMO
corn would not be contained by perimeter plantings of non-GMO corn. In
other words, the buffer plantings won't work because pollen drift ranges
much farther than the recommendations suggest for containment.
I still have the flier but no scanner. If you want more details from the
flier I'll find a way to upload it.
