writes letter to Governor of Indiana supporting pending
legislation in that state that would protect farmers from
overzealous biotech companies.
My name is Rodney Nelson. I farm
nearly 9000 acres in North Dakota. Although I am not a resident
of your state I would like to urge you to support house bill
1975 in you legislature. I have been falsely accused by Monsanto
of saving soybean seed and replanting it. Segregation of GMO
from non GMO has proven to be impossible. I feel the patent of a
plant that cannot be controlled on our farms is insane. Bill
1975 is the only way to protect farmers. Monsanto is suing us
for the entire gross value of the crop, their attorney fees, all
their costs related to the suit, punitive damages times three,
and I assure you we never saved any seed. Mine and my families
lives have been turned into a living hell since the began.
Please don't let any one in your state go through this. If you
pass this maybe our federal government will get the message.
