Horror Seed story in Iraq
Genetically Engineered (GE), Genetically Modified (GM) or Transgenic Crops all mean the same thing.
GM crops are mostly chemical dependent and patented.
Put simply, the seeds available from the suppliers listed below are not designed to need a patented chemical to either grow or ripen.
Non hybrid and Non GM/GE seeds are of �open pollination�, which means that they can be pollinated
by the bees or the wind.
The plants themselves are not patented either so you will not have to pay royalties to a chemical
company for every mouthful of food you grow.
If you grow them commercially the plants are yours and you pay royalties to no one unless of course, your
crop is contaminated by GM pollen and then someone like Monsanto tells you that they now own your crop
because the pollen is patented.
Those who push for, or allow GE/GM crops into our country think that tying us to chemical companies is a good thing. One problem with so-called �GM test crops� is that they are here to contaminate our country with GM pollen and that is a road of no-return. To see what has already happened to the Canadian farmers with this contaminating pollen go to the Canadian Farmers Union www.nfu.ca. Sadly, allowing GM pollen into any country is nothing short of biological and agricultural terrorism.
Monsanto's master plan expressed to Arthur Anderson Consulting Group in 1999 was to ensure 100% of all the world's commercial seeds would be genetically modified and patented. So guess who will then own and control the world's food supply?
