The Center for Food Safety released a report last week showing that three corporations control more than half of the global commercial seed market, resulting in dramatic price increases. From 1995-2011, the average cost to plant 1 acre of soybeans rose 325%, the report found.

WTF is that about?!?!?!

Monsanto has required farmers using its seeds to sign an agreement promising not to save and replant harvested seeds.
.
and WTF sort of farmer doesn't save & replant seeds?
so does this mean that if a farmer was fooled by monsato even once then they have to repurchase seeds from them EVERY year?
WTF is that about?

Money is what its about and its been that way for years with Monsanto with their Roundup Ready soybeans and if you want to plant them you have to buy the seed again from Monsanto.

a few years ago Prince Charles was talking about the horrors of Monsato in India, what their seeds have done to the land, as well as what their practices have done to famers there.
he was laughed at, and he was right.
hundreds of Indian farmers kill themselves every week because of their unpayable debt to Monsato.

Monsato is the true Anti-Christ.

I hope Monsanto loses the SCOTUS ruling and I know farmers that refuse to use Monsanto Roundup Ready Soybeans because of the agreement Monsanto make farmers sign.

I know a guy in Hawaii, he was telling me that they are the largest employer out there.
<sigh>
and because he refuses to sell his soul, he may have to move back to CT.

it's beyond ridiculous the terms that Monsato puts in those contracts, and sadly, because of that, they've all but taken over the world.
the only way to fight back is to plant your own garden with "burpee" seeds, or the like, and freeze/jar your own produce.
