Organic growers claim the presence of biotech improved seeds and harvests make it harder for them to keep organic produce free of GM admixture. But USDA organic standards don't penalize organic growers for accidental presence of non organic produce. Against all precedent and reason, some organic growers who claim to have lost sales  now seek to make their neighbors pay for problems entirely of their own making. This is not a sound basis for policy making.
