It's happening: GMO corn no longer resists insects
According to farmers in Brazil, GMO Bt corn seeds made by Monsanto, Dow Chemical, DuPont, and Syngenta are no longer resisting pests, namely the corn leafworm, or Spodoptera frugiperda. The farmers want the companies to reimburse them for the three rounds of pesticides they’ve had to spray on top of their GMO crops, since the companies’ products failed to deliver on their promises. The Brazilian government is wary of how dependent its farmers have become on toxic chemicals, and the farmers are worried they’ll no longer be able to plant anything but GMO seeds. When is humanity going to learn that it has to co-exist with some bugs – that when you fight bugs, they will fight back…and will most likely win? The Resident discusses.
