A very serious problem for farmers everywhere. Monsanto, and seed ownership must be stopped.

Signed and Noted Nancy.
"Terminator is a direct assault on farmers and indigenous cultures and on food sovereignty. It threatens the well-being of all rural people, primarily the very poorest." The legalizing of Terminator in Brazil would have global implications, including as a violation of the United Nations moratorium on Terminator technologies, in place since 2000 at the Convention on Biological Diversity (ETC Group).

No more play with life of people with those seeds, suicides of Indian people are in all the memories, no this think another time !

This is the stupidest idea I've ever heard. Preventing farmers from re-planting harvested seeds. What an incredible waste. Applause please for the people whose brains are even smaller than the seeds.
