80% of US Corn and 90% of Soybeans Genetically Modified

leave a comment »

The Times has a pretty good rundown of agri-corporation Monsanto’s  monopolistic practices, and it drops a bombshell halfway through the article:

Today more than 90 percent of soybeans and more than 80 percent of the corn grown in this country are genetically engineered. A majority of those crops contain one or more Monsanto genes.

I certainly didn’t know that.

The rest of the article goes on to describe in some detail Monsanto’s illegal, monopolistic business strategy, something on which I’ve done some peripheral reporting here in India. I recommend checking it out.
