Monsanto: Planting Local Seeds, Sprouting Global Effects
This paper examines the activities of Monsanto, specifically its role in the seed industry and the implications for the autonomy of farmers and food security. The study situates the role of Monsanto in the broader context of globalization. The paper argues that today's globalized world has led to the creation of multinational monopolies, like Monsanto, who are tightening their grasp on the world seed market, striving for market supremacy to the detriment of farmers' rights, food security in particular and the global environment at large.
