Monsanto's rogue GM-wheat isn't the first genetically modified plant species to go off the reservation in Oregon. Seven years ago, glyphosate-resistant turf grass took to the breeze and then took root in Jefferson County. I tried to cut through the anti-biotech hysteria in this story for Wired. In another piece, for Portland Monthly, I looked not just at the GM-grass debacle, but also GM tree science--and the conventional-wisdom-obliterating possibility that the biggest fan of genetically modified trees might just be the Lorax.
