Genetic Modified Organisms is what they’re called. Supposedly to be resistant to pesticides so crops can resist the invasion of critters. That’s what we’re told. Go a little deeper and understand that it’s a patented item. That means any such seed has to be purchased from the supplier.
Over the last several years it’s gotten worse, as farmers that were next to GMO crops were sued, when the wind carried the pollination over to non-GMO fields. For awhile the courts were ruling in favor of the GMO companies, like Bayer (Monsanto), DOW, DuPont and Syngenta to name the major players.
