Corporate Control of Rice

Corporate agriculture has poisoned people and rice fields with pesticides and synthetic fertilizers; degraded rice lands; destroyed rice ecosystems, ecological rice practices and rice culture; eliminated traditional native rice varieties and severely undermined the safety of the cereal as food.


Genetically Engineered Rice

There is sufficient evidence to show that biodiversity-based ecological rice agriculture using native rice varieties is sustainable. Conversely, there is increasing evidence to show GE Rice is potentially unsafe for humans, animals and the environment.
