There are a few questions I have as I grow increasingly concerned over all the live experiments going on for plants and trees.

Can GM traits be bred out of GM crops?

Are there any growers attempting to breed GM traits out of their plants / trees?

With all the GM pollen is it possible to have ANY sort of genetic purity as these practices / genetics spread?

Er where to start
Firstly what crops had you in mind ? As far as I know there are no crops that can only be bought as GMO. So just say no and buy your stuff elsewhere . Food does not need that monsanto flavouring

Secondly You could always compost any GMO plants you have already that I think should take care of that

You can grow painted mountain corn right next to GMO corn and they won't pollinate with each other due to the fact they don't tassel at the same time.
