Monsanto Lock-In

Monsanto’s goal is to lock farmers in and make them buy more and more insecticide or patented terminator-gene genetically modified seed each year. For a bug or fungus, Monsanto’s vision of monoculture is ideal. An enormous army of bugs focuses all its efforts on breaking the defences of but a single variety of plant. Once even one bug cracks the defences, they get the entire crop. The way out of Monsanto’s grip is to give up monoculture.
