“With season already under way, it is too late to sow new seeds, so this years harvest has been lost.
And to make things even worse for the farmers, the company that distributed the seeds in Baranya county is under liquidation. Therefore, if any compensation is paid by the international seed producers, the money will be paid primarily to that company’s creditors, rather than the farmers.May 26, 2013 at 8:00 pm #532547

I’m ‘off the computer’ for just a wee while and come back to all this reading. But thanks Hummers for searching it all out and spoon feeding us.
Thank heavens some countries and SA have folk with sense in the government. Maybe a few more efforts, like the walk against Monsanto will jolt our government into the realization that the ‘people’ will not allow this nonsense to continue.
Well it’s not nonsense of course it is criminal behavior, in my opinion.May 27, 2013 at 2:45 am #532549

Dont forget Monsanto’s BT Cotton which was sold to indian peasant farmers with the promises of huge harvests. It failed to deliver and the peasants couldnt keep the seed as it was sterile so they ended up deeply in debt. Farmers have suicided over the debts.
Read “The world according to Monsanto’ book. Even if the evidence is not there yet telling us that their tinkering with crops is bad for us, their business tactics will alarm the hell out of you.
In this country you are required to burn your entire hive if you get AFB but the govt doesnt confiscate it. Bet you a dollar those hives are now in the hands of Monsanto scientists.

Mysterious strain of GM wheat found growing in US field.
Experts are baffled as to how it survived after test trials ended.
Officials say it poses no threat to human health.
But the discovery has still sparked alarm.
Major buyer Japan has cancelled plans to buy US wheat.
The European Union is stepping up testing of imported wheat.
But Australian authorities say it poses little risk here.”May 31, 2013 at 8:47 pm #532557
seems like Europe has won, I’d feel better if the word ‘apparently’ wasn’t in there though,
someone commented they wondered how long before some gm seeds suddenly appeared over there – I don’t like that word ‘apparently’
monsanto are not to be trustedJune 1, 2013 at 1:35 am #532558
Yes calliecat, ‘apparently’ can be a very scary word!! However the article shows that ‘people power’ carries a big whallop!!!

Monasanto has done it again! Eight years ago they signed a pact with the Americian government that they would not introduce GMO wheat. Guess what was found in a wheat field in the USA’s wheat belt?
This article is one of hundreds at the moment. What is frightening is that now their are bans of importing US wheat, what is going to happen to all those farmers whose wheat is their livelihood. Some US states export 90% of their wheat!
To move onto another thing I hate about Monosanto most of us say that we would never knowingly buy their seeds and yet they own nearly every seed company, even in Australia. I am not of course talking about small independent seed companies like Phoenix or Eden, but if it is at a shop like Bunnings, then think again! :nice:
