I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition in agricultural markets.Just one company, Monsanto, controls the majority of seeds in the US, and regularly threatens farmers who don't buy its seeds.What's in our food, anyway? And why aren't there decent labels telling you where it grew, what chemicals are on it, and if it's genetically modified? 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.
