United States Farmers

COMPANY. IMPERIALISM ALIMENTARIO patent covers plants and seeds of all species: pods of peas, tomatoes, peppers, ears of wheat and corn are essentially trasformaran in morgues of seeds. Of his hand, man has inevitably cut the natural cycle planta-semilla, and there will be no more food unless you buy more seeds. This course is splendid for seed companies, and reportedly is also good for the Department of Agriculture of the United States. Quote: The Exterminadora technology was created to prevent that farmers maintain non hybrid seeds, of genetically altered or open pollination that sell large companies. The intention of the multinationals is change genes to make different seeds and these seeds will not belong to anyone who wants to grow them or keep them, but to the undertaking. In recent years, the world community has witnessed with indignation as some multinational producers of seeds have claimed the right of property on entire plant species based on that altered a gene in a member of that species, so its genome belongs to them.

In a world of continuous population growth and increasing demand for food, gigantic transnational expect to sell huge quantities of seeds genetically modified and patented. Food is a big business that tends to grow, and these firms aspire to farmers around the world need to return to them, year after year, to buy them seeds and, in some cases, even the chemical compounds to cultivate them. Plants, licenses, intellectual property rights, patents investigations and trials against agriculture for violating the monopoly of a company on particular variety of seeds are some media that are used to protect their interests. The Exterminadora technology will ensure that markets, farmers, communities and countries depend completely from the company that sold them the seeds to be able to continue feeding. But the most serious problem poses the risk that the terminator feature escape of the genome of the crops that was intentionally incorporated and will transmit to other open-pollinated or wild plants of the surrounding cultures.
