Monsanto’s GMO Seed Patents Are Expiring

Recommended Posts

Monsanto’s GMO seed patents may be expiring, but Wired says it won’t damage the evil empire of agribusiness:

FOR TWENTY YEARS, the agro-tech company Monsanto has been making life difficult for farmers. Well, first the company made it easy: Its genetically modified seeds allowed crops to thrive in the presence of pesticides, dramatically increasing farmers’ yields. But those so-called Roundup Ready seeds came with a caveat: Because their pesticide resistance genes were patented, farmers had to shell out cash to Monsanto every year, instead of potentially reusing the seeds that their crops produced.
