Monsanto wants to start testing GM wheat

GM food crops already on the market include corn, soy and sugar beets. Monsanto attempted to introduce GM wheat in the early part of the decade, but abandoned the effort in 2004 when international buyers threatened to boycott U.S. wheat, prompting U.S. wheat growers to reject the technology.

In the face of record high wheat prices sparked by climate-related crop failures, Monsanto has launched plans to develop GM wheat strains that are more drought- and stress-resistant and produce higher yields, according to company executive Claire CaJacob. Rival companies Syngenta and BASF have also announced plans to engineer GM wheat varieties.

“Also, since GMO plants do not reproduce once the ‘suicide’ gene has been inserted into their DNA, farmers must purchase new seeds every year, resulting in a potential food monopoly akin to the oil and banking cartels. This practice institutes a sneaky form of monopoly that will only get worse and worse until a small elite cartel controls our entire food supply.”
