Monsanto breaks law in India by smuggling GMO seeds

  • Monsanto-Mahyco Biotech brought 100 grams of cotton seeds into India, containing the MON531-Bt gene, without the approval of the Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee (GEAC).
  • Monsanto-Mahyco started large scale, open field trials of said Bt cotton in 40 locations spread across nine states, again without GEAC approval. (These could easily mix with non-GMO cotton, and Monsanto would have be able to collect huge fines from impoverished farmers.)
  • Some of this GMO cotton was sold in open markets. 
  • Indian law does not permit patents on seeds and in agriculture. 
  • US officials have pressured India's gov't to change their laws about this.  
  • And more cheap tricks by Monsanto. See article.
