Nobody needs corporations like Monsanto... or BAYER or how they all are named... our agricultural farming was better without the influence of their chemical products and the seeds and crops they produce. We should use more the old crops and seeds and subsidize organic local and individual farming more instead of all this monocultures and mass-productions in any case. That would be much better.

Front page story on this in our local paper...killing everything in its drift path, not just crops. Look for food prices to go up because of this. Thanx Fiona.

Considering the crew running the EPA and the USDA these days, we probably will not see any action to rein in this devastating pesticide use. Will we have to wait until the situation reaches the point of no return?

This monsanto has repercussions. Natural alternatives are the way. As explained 'the organic' produce is working well. No need to use harmful pesticides etc. What's the real truth? Do the monsanto people eat crops they've sprayed with pesticides etc?

We can as consumers have the given right to refuse monsanto using such harmful products. We demand they change from these pesticides etc.at once. Consumers shall take it further in Law ~ if monsanto isn't listening to the vast amount of public demands! Thankyou

As consumers we have 'given rights' as to what we expect from the companies who claim to provide products [especially foods] to be of a High standard. Or...... we bring this to question. If~ found not to be of high standardsto our satisfaction we demand what we want to purchase! thank you.
