Volunteers:

In botanical terminology, a volunteer is a plant which grows without being intentionally sown. Volunteer crops result from seeds which fall during harvest or which are carried onto a field by animals or wind.

Usually, volunteers are unwanted, since they often result in a lower yield or hinder the growing of another crop species on the field. Especially in case of GM crops, if conventional crops are grown on a field which was used for GM crops of the same species in the year before, volunteers can escalate GMO admixture.
