"As of today, USDA has neither found nor been informed of anything that would indicate that this incident amounts to more than a single isolated incident in a single field on a single farm," said USDA Office of Communications Director Matt Paul. "All information collected so far shows no indication of the presence of GE wheat in commerce." </p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/usda-gm-wheat-isolated-incident" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/usda-gm-wheat-isolated-incident#comments Issues Biotech Seed/Transgenic Seed USDA Wheat Tue, 18 Jun 2013 20:08:00 +0000 80262 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com USDA Investigating Detection Of Positive Genetically Engineered Glyphosate-Resistant Wheat http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/issues/usda-investigating-detection-positive-genetically-engineered-glyphosate-resistant-wheat <div class="node-body video-body"><p> &nbsp;</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/issues/usda-investigating-detection-positive-genetically-engineered-glyphosate-resistant-wheat" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/issues/usda-investigating-detection-positive-genetically-engineered-glyphosate-resistant-wheat#comments Crop Chemicals Issues Wheat Wed, 29 May 2013 20:04:00 +0000 79142 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com More Big Changes in Canada http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/marketing/more-big-changes-canada <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Change is coming to the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) and with it, big changes for grain producers and the entire grain-marketing system in Canada.
