Farmers Still Waiting for Justice

This week marked the two-year anniversary of the first of five workshops held by the Justice and Agriculture departments as part of a 2010 effort to engage the public on competition issues affecting agriculture. More than 15,000 public comments later, and neither agency has provided a formal response to the public about what they discovered and what they’re doing to confront anticompetitive conduct, especially in the seed industry. OSA provided detailed descriptions of the problems, as well as solutions, in this letter (opens PDF) and continues to raise the visibility of the consequences of seed concentration for farmer choice, innovation, and food security through public presentations and policy organizing.
