Unapproved GMO Monsanto wheat goes rogue in Oregon, prompting a lawsuit in Kansas.

This USA Today story describes the implications for US trade with Europe and Asia: No genetically engineered wheat has been approved for U.S. farming. Many countries will not accept imports of genetically modified foods, and the United States exports about half of its wheat crop.
