1st March, 2008

It’s 2008, and feeding ourselves has never been easier. We take for granted a supply of every agricultural commodity on the planet, 365 days a year. Food is cheap.

Imagine…food without pesticides …seeds without patents …a future without Monsanto

John Hepburn

1st September, 2004

Monsanto’s global website says: ‘Imagine innovative agriculture that creates "incredible" things today.’ Actually, I think most of us are more interested in ‘credible’ things when it comes to agriculture.
