Ever heard of terminator seeds? Terminator technology is the genetic alteration of plants to make them produce sterile seeds. In simple terms, terminator seeds are good for biotech companies but bad for gardeners and farmers.
Closely related is the issue of genetically modified organisms, which I believe is the violation of natural organisms’ intrinsic values, tampering with nature by mixing genes among species and domination of food production by a few companies. The debate has been with us for years now, begging the question of ethics and integrity for those dealing with the seed business.
There’s only one question in every gardener’s mind; with so many rogue seed companies out there, how can one spot the best seed companies to do business with?
