I am not sure I understand your question exactly, but I presume you are asking if the people who respond to these questions as a courtesy to the public on behalf of the university where they are employed receive funding from Monsanto. The answer is likely yes. Monsanto and other companies involved in agriculture and other scientific disciplines provide funding for research at many, if not most, public land grant universities and also many private institutions. Given the dearth of federal funding, this support is very important and enables researchers to move forward with independent research that will ultimately support the general public.
I also recognize that there are concerns about whether we in the land grant universities are influenced by these companies or whether their financial support is ethical. That is unfortunate. I have spent 40 years in the land grant system, and I don’t see an issue with conflict of interest. I am guided first by my personal ethics to conduct and report unbiased research, as well as by a comprehensive set of policies and processes developed by the university.
We would welcome funding to conduct research from other sources, but, unfortunately, those don’t exist. It is important to point out that when we accept funding from a company, most of the time those funds do not have strings attached. We accept funds to conduct research in our focused area of study, and we are given free rein to publish the results, regardless of whether they are in the company's favor or not.
