You have quit Europe, now quit India, farmers tell Monsanto

“Cotton and the cloth made from indigenous cotton are a symbol of our freedom struggle”
Close on the heels of transnational seed company Monsanto abandoning its programme for development of genetically modified (GM) crops in Europe last month, there are growing calls for the company to do the same in India.
Its decision to withdraw all applications to grow GMO crops in Europe came in the face of strong opposition to the technology that was hurting its commercial interests.
