Did you know, that today, most of the world’s seeds are owned, grown and CONTROLLED by very big companies like Shell, or pharmaceutical companies like Monsanto’s Pharmacia, and others such as Aventis and Syngenta. These companies grow seed as a commodity and not a food resource, to make a profit.
The problem with this is:
Most seeds are hybrid seeds that won’t grow well without fertilizer and pesticides. If the farmer has a bad crop due to cyclones, floods, drought etc. the farmer will sink into debt because they had to borrow money to buy all of the seed companies products.
The seeds that are sold to the farmers are genetically altered so that the crops will grow sterile seeds. The farmer will need to continue to purchase seeds from these big companies together with their fertilizers and pesticides to continue to get a yield.
These large companies patent these genetically modified seeds so they own the rights to them. If a crop of a farmer next door to a field with GMO seeds gets contaminated by the wind blowing seeds accross, these large companies will go ahead and sue this innocent farmer for a a breach of patent. His crop will be destroyed and he will go broke. This is pure EVIL.
When buying seeds for your own backyard, make sure you buy them from organic and Heirloom companies. These companies are in no way associated with these greedy and evil companies. The seeds you will yield from your crops will yield new crops, “true to type”.
Seeds bought from companies such as Yates and DT. Brown are all hybrid seeds and you will not be able to yield a crop that was the same as last years crop.
Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.
The land produced vegetation–all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants and trees of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.”
