Monsanto sucks. See the article in Planeta Azul highlighted below. Under the guise of being a seed production company, they are colonizers of international agriculture. I remember it from agent orange days when it made chemicals to destroy vegetation in Vietnam (among other things). Whatever it needs to do to make a buck it does. Monsanto is the company that forbade farmers from harvesting seeds from their own crops if they initially used Monsanto seed. They're the company that hunts down people who might have some corn from Monsanto seed they didn't buy....even if the seed drifted into their fields. They are the killers of biodiversity, turning agriculture into a dangerously vulnerable monster industry. Here's another article from Vanity Fair.
