Dow and DuPont — two of the "Big 6" seed and pesticide corporations dominating global markets — have announced their plan to merge into a $130 billion company.
This is bad news for the food system.
With just a handful of corporations already controlling much of the seed supply for crops like corn and soybeans, as well as the herbicides that genetically engineered seeds are designed to be grown with, this merger means even more corporate control of food and farming.
With more consolidation, farmers will be left with fewer choices and higher prices for seeds. And it will make it even harder for our agriculture system to get off the GE/pesticide treadmill.
Urge the Department of Justice (DOJ) to block this merger. We don't need increased corporate control and consolidation of the agriculture industry. Sign the petition today!
