Do Companies Make Farmers Buy GMO Seeds?
Companies do not force farmers to buy GMO seeds. In fact, in the U.S. and most other agricultural countries, the market for seed sales is open, therefore it is not possible for companies to “force” farmers to buy only one type of seed.
Farmers choose what seeds to grow based on what is best for their farms, market demand and local growing environments. In fact, there are a wide variety of seed options available to farmers, including organic, hybrid, conventional and genetically modified seeds. Many farmers successfully grow organic, non-GMO and genetically modified crops on the same farm.
