Genetically Modified Canola Plants Common in North Dakota

University of Arkansas graduate students sampled wild canola plants every five miles along 3,000 miles of roads in the state of North Dakota. Of 406 plants sampled, 80% of the plants had a minimum of one transgene attributable only to genetically modified canola plants. 46% of the stops found genetically modified canola plants.

This is described as the first time that genetically (transgenic) modified organisms have established a wild population in the U.S.
