The discovery of Roundup Ready technology in a small amount of soft white wheat in a fallow Oregon field has impacted the market for all US wheat. Following confirmation by researchers and action by the USDA to ensure the wheat was isolated, the U.S. Wheat Associates are working to assure international customers that the problem is an isolated issue and U.S. wheat does not contain unwanted genetics.

Steve Mercer, Vice President for Communications of the U.S. Wheat Associates (703-650-0251), addresses this issue in a special Grainnet Podcast. (12:30)
