Dateline April 7, 2016:

Multi-national corporate giants are poised to take even more control over seed industry. DuPont (Pioneer) is merging with Dow AgroSciences while Monsanto sets its sights on acquiring  Bayer CropScience.

IF these moves go forward three companies will control more than half of global seed sales.

Save for stockholders and over-paid executives who benefits here? Humanity? Nope. Biodiversity? Definitely not  – a big step back. Farmers? Absolutely not. The Planet? Nosiree. This is yet another poison arrow in the butt of earth.
