you-reap-what-you-sowMonopolizing the seed industry

The influence of the large corporations on the global food production is growing fast. The global seed market gives a clear indication of their power, with market monopolies for ever fewer multinational biotech corporations. As new European biopatents legislation and agriculture policies are taking shape, the global corporations are quietly taking over the European market. This brochure takes a look at the current state of affairs in Europe and the Netherlands, and examines the implications for the future of food and farming as we know it. The brochure is available in English and Dutch. [Some figures will be a bit outdated by now and there are some new developments regarding the EU seed legislation, but the text is still worth reading.]
