The successes' of the green and gene revolutions in agriculture have been greatly compromised by corporate greed explicit in neo-liberal globalization. The right to food of millions of people in the world is being compromised by the profit making antics of corporations like Monsanto. Farmers especially in Africa, Asia and South America are slowly but steadily losing complete control over organic seed management and are being forced to depend on corporate seed companies that are driven by profit accumulation instead of pro-poor agricultural empowerment.Using the WTO,IMF and World Bank, governments in the so called south have been forced to open their markets as developed nations close theirs. This ruse is intended to suffocate economies in the south in the politics of export dumping, TRIPS, subsidies, organic agricultural alienation and extirpation. World over,farmers are protesting against the genetically modified seeds of seed corporations and are advocating for a paradigm shift from genetic to organic agriculture.Are you confused about green and gene revolutions? This book is a must read for you.
