The J.R. Simplot Co. plans to keep its GMO potato in a “closed-loop” system while it builds industry acceptance, a company representative says. The system will ensure the potatoes don’t go outside controlled farms or anywhere else by accident, said Kerwin Bradley, director of commercialization for Simplot. Seed grown by Simplot on controlled farms will go only to licensed growers. The potatoes then will go to isolated packing sheds, which will not provide them to non-GMO market channels.
