Can GM and organic farms coexist?

the question of the title of this post is NOT philosophical.
The bottom line is the cross-contamination that GM crops cause to organic ones. So the organic farmers find them selves in legal trouble WITHOUT having done anything wrong...

IN EU, the legal limits of 0.9 % of GM material in organic crops is low...very low; we should probably re-consider it.
