Good luck, everything I've tried has been crossbred by monsanto and turned into funky nonedible things. There are to many people around me that plant hybrids... perhaps if I grew them in a greenhouse. I'd love to hear that you have better results.

There are not as many cornfields here and none within at least 5 miles of me. The feed mill is close I don't think it will have corn pollen.  But you're right. Even deep in Mexico it has caused problems. That is because people will throw out kernels of corn as a ritual or something. Of course it doesn't produce a crop but those bought kernels will grow enough to pollinate and ruin the native corn. There needs to be a large effort to sue Monsanto for destroying seeds. So far they sue everyone that sells seed that have been infected by their GMO and win. The lawsuit needs to be modified to Monsanto ruining pure seed strains. As far as I am concerned they might as well be guilty of dumping chemical waste on people's land without asking.

who are the people in Monsanto?

always thought it would be logical to hunt them down in Kuai, for starters, that's where Monsanto's power matrix meets.

lots of weirdness in Hawaii nowadays.

and soon, New Zealand.

and Ukraine.

Some people bring swim fins to the knife fight, watch the other idiots kill each other, then take their stuff and swim happily out of zombie range.

Start with corporate vice presidents. I think companies make large vice-president pools to let them try to outdo each other for next step on the ladder. They also the pool that will sell out anything or anyone to get a head. Monsanto is the worst because they want to control the food supply. Corporations that want to control air, food or water are the worst of the worst.
