Technology Review

"Monsanto no longer controls one of the biggest innovations in the history of agriculture."

"Billy Maddox planted 100 acres of Roundup Ready soybeans this year. The big news is he didn’t pay Monsanto a dime.

It’s been 20 years since Monsanto developed its first genetically modified crops. Now some of its early patents are starting to expire, leading to the first “generic GMOs”—off-patent seeds that cost half as much and which farmers are free to save and replant.

Maddox is a seed dealer who works with conventional varieties. This year was the first time he ever sold any GMOs. "

I'm very much not in favor of using GMO products myself, but removing Monsanto's control is at least a step in the right direction.
