Bill Gates has more than enough $$$$ to save these poor farmers and Indian Gov should prosecute Monsanto for total FRAUD....well past payback time for this poison...masquerading as the solution to poverty and hunger!!

Plant Hemp instead; high yield, low water consumption; little or no pesticides and fertilizers required and its cheap to grow. You can make high quality clothes, paper and about 4,998 other item from it. Duh!

What a tragedy. Monsanto should be held accountable but my limited research and understanding about this company is that they are sneaky and well-insulated from any repercussion. Disgusting!

This is appalling news and just shows what happens when multinational giants have control over anything.

Monsanto doesn't care. You can bet there is more of this kind of stuff going on that we haven't heard of yet.
