Wasn't quite sure where to put this question? Will genetically modified seed reproduce more seed or do you have to buy every year?

I do not like what I'm reading about GMO seed and food grown with this seed?

How can I know that I'm not buying GMO seed? I read that some of the biggest GMO producers are buying out seed Companies so they get to control the seed market with theirs?

Just a question of concern that is good to know before I go out next spring and buy my garden seed, thanks.

I read recently that they are trying to pass a Bill in the US that would require labelling a product that has been genetically modified, hope that will pass in Canada as well.

I really know nothing about GMS. So sorry.
perhaps someone will come by that knows something.

In the mean time, if I find out something I will be sure to let you know.

Some GMO seeds will reproduce more GMO seeds. There are still companies that sell non-GMO seeds. Look for heirloom seeds. I had a list of such companies but I cannot find it right now. One beginning would be My Patriot Supply dot com. But there are many others.

No, I left my own soapbox out of it as well.

I've found a site that says ALL their seeds are non GMO so I'm ordering seeds from there.
