It is a name that Americans are hearing more and more, Monsanto.
An agriculture company that has become connected to the term GMO’s. So what is Monsanto? What exactly are GMO’s? and why are people so up in arms about a company that grows food?
And the big question, is Monsanto one of the best examples of America’s crony capitalist system?
The first step toward truth is to inform.
If the name Monsanto is not familiar to you, lets get you caught up.
According to Monsanto’s website,
“Monsanto is a sustainable agriculture company. We deliver agricultural products that support farmers all around the world. We are focused on empowering farmers—large and small—to produce more from their land while conserving more of our world’s natural resources such as water and energy. We do this with our leading seed brands in crops like corn, cotton, oilseeds and fruits and vegetables.”
