In only ten years time between 1995 and 2005, Monsanto acquired over 50 seed companies throughout the world. These companies produced corn, cotton, wheat and soybeans, and also seeds for tomatoes, potatoes and sorghum. Everywhere, people worry about Monsanto’s monopoly, which in the long-term threatens to wipe out all non-transgenic varieties.
Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation. It is headquartered in Creve Coeur, Greater St. Louis, Missouri. Monsanto is a leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed and Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide.
It was one of the top 10 U.S. chemical companies until it divested most of its chemical businesses between 1997 and 2002, through a process of mergers and spin-offs that focused the company on biotechnology.
