How can organic, non-GMO, and GMO crops coexist? That is the puzzle that USDA's Advisory Committee on Biotechnology & 21st Century Agriculture (AC21) has been asked to answer.

Of special concern is adventitious presence, the term used for low levels of unintended material in seed, grain, or feed and food products. Clarkson will review the arguments underlying the battles between GMO and non-GMO farmers over adventitious presence and explore potential compromises to minimize adventitious presence in organic, non-GMO, and selected GMO crops.
