The Evidence Is In: Monsanto's Roundup Ready Seeds - DO NOT WORK!!

Monsanto's longtime claim: that Roundup Ready technology solved the age-old problem of weeds in an ecologically benign way.

Today: In the US.. 90 percent of soybean acres, 70 percent of corn and cotton acres and a whopping 95% share of the sugar beets market are planted in Roundup Ready seeds.

Today: there are no fewer than 10 weed species resistant to Roundup.. thriving "in at least 22 states infesting millions of acres"

"..farmers are responding [with] jacked-up application rates of Roundup, supplemented by other, harsher poisons."

"..a federal judge [has] halted future plantings of Roundup Ready beets until the USDA completes an environmental impact study of their effects." (14 years too late)

"In short, Monsanto's Roundup Ready technology is emerging as an environmental disaster."

No surprises here.

Monsanto, the giant biotechnology agriculture company that created genetically modified corn, soybeans and herbicides, isn't riding so high this year in the stocks department, as news comes in that its products aren't working like they'd hoped.

According to the New York Times, weeds are becoming immune to Monsanto's herbicide Roundup, and its latest genetically modified, 8-gene corn is a flop, producing yields no higher than the company's less expensive corn, which contains only three foreign genes.

"Monsanto has already been forced to sharply cut prices on SmartStax and on its newest soybean seeds, called Roundup Ready 2 Yield, as sales fell below projections," the Times said. "And the Justice Department is investigating Monsanto for possible antitrust violations."

"Until now, Monsanto's main challenge has come from opponents of genetically modified crops, who have slowed their adoption in Europe and some other regions. Now, however, the skeptics also include farmers and investors who were once in Monsanto's camp."

Monsanto was named "company of the year" by Forbes Magazine in December. Last week, television stock market commentator Jim Cramer said it "may be the worst stock of 2010," the Times said.

An absolutely fantatic point!

China is the manufacturing country.

..but which country will be the food producing nation?

Certainly not any of the countries planting Monsanto Seeds.

Because of the floods.. instead of a drive to Shepparton via my normal route.. I had to go via Yarrawonga..

The amount of farms growing genetically modified canola in Victoria is amazing..!!!

I guess Australia will not be producing food for the world when the New World Order is finally in place.

Of course it doesnt..

That is the point I was making.

No country that is currently using roundup will be producing food for the world in, say, 20 years time.
