The United States Government has been financing research on a genetic engineering technology which, when commercialized, will give its owners the power to control the food seed of entire nations or regions.
The Government has been working quietly on this technology since 1983. Now, the little-known company that has been working in this genetic research with the Governments US Department of Agriculture-- Delta & Pine Land-- is about to become part of the worlds largest supplier of patented genetically-modified seeds (GMO), Monsanto Corporation of St. Louis, Missouri.
Relations between Monsanto, Delta & Pine Land and the USDA, on closer scrutiny, show the deep and dark side of the much-heralded genetic revolution in agriculture.
It proves deep-held suspicions that the Gene Revolution is not about solving the world hunger problem as its advocates claim. Its about handing over control of the seeds for mankinds basic food supplyrice, corn, soybeans, wheat, even fruit, vegetables and cottonto privately owned corporations.
