Soylandia, II

rich/ March 23, 2009/ Farm/

In more Soylandia news, farmers who illegally planted genetically modified Roundup Ready soybeans are now going back to conventional soy after finding that the Monsanto product gave poor yields.

Unfortunately, the final paragraph is the stomach-sinker:

“Companies have been focusing their research on GMO soy more than on conventional ones. So in 10 years we could have 100 percent of the area planted with GMO soy not because this was farmers’ choice exactly but because development of new conventional varieties is getting scarce,”

Translated: there’s not much money in developing new productive soy strains that aren’t dependent on chemicals.
