Owned by Monsanto

Seed Companies Owned by Monsanto

and its Subsidiaries. 

The seed industry used to rely on universities for their research and development.  Today the industry is dominated by a few major chemical and pharmaceutical giants that patent specific traits in seeds and charge fees to farmers who use their patented seeds.  If that wasn’t enough, farmers may not use any of the offspring for the following planting season.  Monsanto is a One-to-Many conglomerate.
