I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition in agricultural markets. Monsanto's control of the majority of seeds and attempts to threaten farmers who don't use them is of particular concern, as is a lack of transparency in labeling, the "revolving door" between corporate lobbyists and government regulators, rising food prices that seem to benefit large corporations and leave small farmers out in the cold, and non-sustainable practices in farming and food processing.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.
