Conspiracies are not our favourite subject of conversation in our household at least. In this case USaid or Dep of Trade pressuring governments to purchase US products is business as usual. Don’t you think? GM seeds and pesticides package are no different. Widespread farmer to famers seed exchanges or seed cooperatives may help to break the vicious circle. The demand by centralised food distribution, the Wallmart syndrome, is the real problem. They need predictability, uniformity of product etc etc, From there proprietary GM or otherwise hybrid seeds are pushed to farmers who have in the end little choice but to break free from the market dictators.
