$11 Million is probably the CEO's travel expenses alone for a year.

Don't worry. Monsanto will trespass on their land and plant their death seeds then sue them.

No, they'll just have a flu epidemic and patient zero will be a cotton farmer in India.

$11 million lost on a $15 Billion revenue is nothing more than chump change. If anything, that loss saved them money in taxes as it can be used as a write off.

I'd hold off for now. Monsanto is currently embedded in a lawsuit in California that would make them listing the ingredients to Roundup as cancer causing agents. Until that lawsuit is issued a verdict, it isn't a sure bet.

Each million adds up. MonSatan let go of about 3,000 employees last year because sales were down. I;m glad these people are taking their health and the health of the plants back. Who wants to buy seeds where the DNA has been so dramatically changed they can't reproduce. And to keep buying franked-seeds over and over again to replenish their crops.

Thing is, the absence of reproductive capacity in the plants isn't a side effect, it's obviously a clear goal.

Actually, it is. It's not even a secret really. They purposefully put in a gene that terminates their ability to produce fertile seeds, so that you buy whole new seeds for the next farming year.

This is so wide spread right now because a lot of farmers can not maintain their livelihood without being a contract farmer. Meaning they get funded and paid by a company to produce a certain crop and have to abide by that company's rules.

Most of the time they require you to use these seeds because they have a deal put into place that benefits those at the top, and because they produce the most yield when paired with the pesticides that YOU ARE REQUIRED to spray the plants with. They will not 'buy' them from you at the end of your contract period if you do not.

The agriculture world has become very deadly for anyone who dares to go against the corporate norm. Rest assure that these farmers will not go unpunished for simply trying to produce crops a healthier way. Believe me when I say the farming world is run like the freaking mafia.

$11 Million is a peanut in an elephants ass for a large multinational.
