dc.identifier.citationSeed giants vs. U.S. farmers : a report by the Center for Food Safety & Save Our Seeds. Washington, DC : Center for Food Safety, 2013.en_US
dc.description.abstractThis report recounts the history of seed and plant breeding and intellectual property policies in the U.S. and outlines how the current intellectual property regime has resulted in seed industry consolidation, rising seed prices, loss of germplasm diversity, and the strangling of scientific inquiry. It then documents lawsuits and threats of lawsuits by the largest agrichemical companies in the world against U.S. farmers for alleged infringement of seed patents. Finally, the report provides policy options that can help protect farmers and food resources as well as generate seed innovation and research through fair access to seeds and other resources.en_US
