I apologize, but I am a scientist too Kevin, with 30 years of clinical science experience (including 8 years in the heavily regulated drug development world of pharmaceuticals). I take you at your word when you say you all have thought this through for 2 years. But - as put forward for those of us that are concerned enough about the anti-GMO crowd to fund this, I am concerned about what I (and others) perceive to be some design flaws that will allow the anti-GMO crowd to do credible damage to this NOT simple experiment; however, it is an important experiment. Again - I apologize for this post because I'm really not trying the rain on the project. For example, the design as I understand is a "single" blind when it could (and likely should) be double blind. I'll be quiet now; looking forward to receiving my kit and getting on with it.

Is it possible to obtain a copy of the proposal? I'm particularly interested in the sample size analysis, blinding, allocation to treatment, experimental units and statistical analysis plan (SAP).

As Mr. Banwell points out the "anti's" will be in paroxysms over Monsanto's involvement. To head this off, Monsanto should be able to produce a batch record (much same as a pharmaceutical) that records everything about the seeds from planting to harvest. If the "organic" corn is indeed organic e.g. Without pesticide use then the batch record will reflect that in formation. The anti's will surely find something wrong but at least the experiment will show the facts.
