“Terminator” gene: On March 3, 1998, a U.S. patent was granted to the Delta and Pine Land Company and the Agricultural Research Service of USDA for a method of genetically engineering plants to produce sterile seed. This technology, called the “technology protection system,” was subsequently dubbed the “terminator” gene technology. It has since received wide publicity. The terminator gene is likely to be bred into many GMO seeds by 2005. (From: Dept of State)
Considering that in the year 2010 as much as 73% of USA corn was GMO (From: USDA), it shows that food production in USA is being actively monopolized.
