The Boom of Monsanto and other Seed Corporations Blows in the South of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is the epicenter of experiments with genetically modified seeds in the United States and its territories. Several multinational seed corporations benefit from this business, such as Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer, Dow AgroSciences, Syngenta and AgReliant Genetics, which between all already occupy 14% of public lands with the best potential for growing food. Seed corporations receive more in subsidies than what they pay in taxes to the government on an island plunged in its worst fiscal crisis.
