The report noted that three big companies now control more than half of the global seed market – a position that has sent prices soaring. The report said the average cost of planting an acre of soybeans had risen 325% between 1995 and 2011.
I thought the seed companies were in this game because they love seed and they want to help other folks out.
They’re just trying to corner the market on seed to make money? That’s fucked up.
I feel really disillusioned by this, but I’m not sure what to do because the Supreme Court which is one of our ‘protectors’ and the most noble of the three branches of our fine government, voted 9-0 to continue this trend of corporate ownership of seed.
They must feel like they’re looking out for us.
