MONSANTO BRAND SEED NAMES TO AVOID... KEEP THIS LIST OF SEED NAMES

First of all, Monsanto or no one else can actually OWN these varieties of seed.  This is a move by Monsanto to secure the names only.  It does not stand to reason that any crop of these varieties growing today or in the future will be genetically modified in some manner... ~ See list and response from Monsanto

 

Sharing this information is only a vehicle to get the information directly related to industry news out to the public.  I want to highlight those companies with actual ties to big Agri-business, and for that I put together an expanding list of companies that does have ties with Monsanto.  You make your own decision whether to purchase from them or not based on information sources like ours.

 

If you are the type of gardener who purchases vegetable seeds or seedlings, including tomato plants from a local garden center, be mindful the varieties you choose.

Conversely, you might be placing money into the hands of Monsanto Corporation. Below is the list of Seminis / Monsanto home-garden vegetable variations.

Print this list, and keep a copy in your wallet. Don't be caught off guard the next time you impulse shop at a big-box garden center.

The seed varieties you have obtained as "heirlooms" from heirloom or organic seed companies are "NOT" GMO seeds, even though they are officially "owned" by Monsanto.

As far as we know, the only GMO vegetable seeds available for sale today are new hybrid varieties of zucchini and summer squash, so be sure you order these from certified organic suppliers.

Please understand that Monsanto only owns the trademark names for these "heirloom" varieties. This strategic move holds two advantages for Monsanto:

1.) prevents new companies from naming new varieties with these or very similar names.

2.) it is an effort to stop lucrative sales by these other companies trying to leverage the heirloom name and consumer loyalty for those heirloom varieties.

If you have left over seeds, do not be reluctant to plant them. Monsanto will only profit from customers purchasing these varieties from companies that are stocking seeds obtained directly from Monsanto or one of its distributors.

The Monsanto Boycott Lists...

I went to my local home improvement store last night and decided to pick up a seed greenhouse and check over the seeds.  At least 85% of the seeds for sale there had ties to Monsanto. 

To help you all I have put together the 'Monsanto Boycott List'.  In the next day or so, I will be consolidating this list down to a handy pocket guide.  In the meantime, check out the ever-growing pack of wolves surrounding our food freedoms...

 

Monsanto Replies...

In response to the growing number of complaints flooding them in regards to the issue of the company acquiring patent rights on the names of heirloom vegetables, they released the following statement:

Monsanto seeks intellectual property protection, including patents and often plant breeders' rights, to cover many of the traits and seed varieties we develop. These protections help to ensure we are paid for our products and for the investments we put into developing them.

We sell these proprietary products in the market using business models that reinforce our obligations to reinvest, provide a return to our shareowners and provide for our employees.

Monsanto re-invests more than $2.6 million per day in research and development that ultimately benefits farmers and consumers.

No business can survive without being paid for its products or services and we maintain rigor in assuring the success of the business models we implement to deliver our products and services to the market.
