There are actually SEVERAL reasonably accurate, quick, economical tests to determine GMO grains.

In spite of all the ridiculous claims made by anti-GMO conspiracy theorist,s GMO's have no undetectable "black art" to them. They employ genetically introduced proteins that are not found in non gmo crops as the "active ingredient". It's a simple matter of testing for those proteins.

Most grain elevators use a simple "strip test" to check for these proteins in grain being sold as non GMO or organic. Can be performed in a matter of a few minutes.

Oh yeah I know about the GMO tests.

But is there an easy test to check for Organic verses Non GMO?

Sounds like a lot of the organic is done on good faith. Maybe I don't understand the record keeping system that they use.

From what I read here, posted by a few of the Non GMO advocates, THEY don't fully understand the record keeping/certification it takes to truly qualify as "organic". It seems some think just badmouthing what they don't understand is enough to qualify them as organic farmers. There's a great deal to actually being CERTIFIED ORGANIC. And when push comes to shove, they're EITHER Certified organic, or they aren't really organic, just claiming so to capitalize on a fad.

That said, so long as they have PROPER documentation, and their crops test free of GMO proteins, it is a lot of "good faith" and there is a LOT of room for rule bending.
