Mega-Entity With Mega Greed Now Controls Large Portion of Global Seed Supply

Story at-a-glance
“Harvest of Greed” investigates a number of the many issues and concerns brought about by the merger of Monsanto and Bayer AG
U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) approved the merger in April 2018, following the EU’s approval in March. DOJ has also given the Dow-DuPont merger the green light, and the Federal Trade Commission recently approved ChemChina’s acquisition of Syngenta
The Bayer-Monsanto entity is now the largest seed and pesticide company in the world, controlling more than 25 percent of the global seed and pesticide supply. In all, just three companies now dominate the global seed and pesticide market
Farmers are concerned about what the merger might do to prices and quality, as less competition inevitably tends to lead to price hikes, while reducing incentive for innovation
The merger will also give the subsequent entity even more power to pressure and manipulate governments into accepting the unacceptable risks posed by GMOs and toxic pesticides
