local potatoes corn aaronCorn–self-explanatory–but my question is, we didn’t ask, but how prevalent is GM corn here in NC? Do even small farmers end up growing it inadvertently? It’s partly a math question: if the current stat is that about 70-80% of corn being grown is GMO, and only 10% is organic, then some percentage is non-GMO non-organic corn. Interesting but not particularly encouraging. The odds are not in our favor, especially as the pollen and seeds fly.
