Subject: Comments



I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition in agricultural markets.

Food is grown and raised in ways that are terrible for the environment, with methods that pollute the water, poison the soil, and threaten our long-term food security.

Just one company, Monsanto, controls the majority of seeds in the US, and regularly threatens farmers who don't buy its seeds.

There is a "revolving door" of personnel between corporate lobbyists and government regulators. No wonder corporations aren't held to strict standards.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.

Sincerely,

Jasmine Walton
