Scientists must ask corporations for permission before publishing independent research on GM crops.
Advances in agricultural technology—including, but not limited to, the genetic modification of food crops—have made fields more productive than ever. Farmers grow more crops and feed more people using less land. They are able to use fewer pesticides and to reduce the amount of tilling that leads to erosion. And within the next two years, agritech com­panies plan to introduce advanced crops that are designed to survive heat waves and droughts, resilient characteristics that will become increasingly important in a world marked by a changing climate.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to verify that genetically modified crops perform as advertised. That is because agritech companies have given themselves veto power over the work of independent researchers.

And heres what Monsanto says about it all.

Does Monsanto prevent independent researchers (at universities, for example) from doing adequate research on the safety and efficacy of GM seeds? Do patent limitations from companies limit this type of research?

No.

Monsanto fully supports research by the public sector research community with commercial products and fully endorses comparisons with competitors’ commercial products.
