pesticide resistant crops

  • problems with gmos: Monsanto literally trademarks strains of crops and uses their Trademarked™ Grain™ to exert more legal control over independant farmers and also prevents farmers from saving seeds to plant the next season. gmo alfalfa (fed to livestock) is resistant to pesticides/herbicides which gives it potential to be an invasive weed that is difficult to kill. It also negatively impacts farmers whose alfalfa may be tainted or affected by the spread of this strain and rejected by buyers overseas who do not allow gmos
  • NOT problems with gmos: they are unhealthy and killing bees
