GM Crops and the Test of Time

They say that the EU will be the loser as a result. Monsanto will still try to persuade the Europeans to permit the sale in Europe of GM crops grown elsewhere, but the European is suspicious by nature of food that is created artificially.

GM crops break out in Dakota

Bio-engineering companies have been working to produce genetically modified crops for many years. The theory is that these newly engineered crops will be resistant to disease and pests, and will produce much larger yields than crops at present, so GM food is hailed by the companies that produce them as a way to feed the starving hundreds of millions on the planet. The GM companies are also seeking to create a monopoly on their inventions by two processes. The first is to use the intellectual property laws around the world – particularly patent law – to protect their inventions. The second is to design the crops in such a way that farmers cannot produce fertile seeds from them as they have done for generations, but rather have to buy a new supply of GM seeds each season.
