EU is preparing legislation that will make it illegal to grow crops that are not on a list of approved seeds? A list that currently 60% dominated by big corporations like Monsanto, AstraZenecar and others? The pros list are basically only hybrids – which means that you can not take next year’s seed from his crop. Furthermore, it will not only be forbidden to sell other seeds than those already mentioned, but also to grow. “File sharing” in the area of seeds will become a criminal act. This means that people be even less able to influence what you eat, when you can not even decide what to grow. It also means that the varieties that are historically interesting will disappear, even varieties that can withstand our climate. This means that poor people who live off what they grow is referred to in the seedtrades discretion in terms of pricing, which can be costly where there are few players.

HELP HERE.

The forbidden seed! How many here know that the EU is preparing legislation that will make it illegal to grow crops that are not on a list of approved seeds? A list that currently 60% dominated by big corporations like Monsanto, AstraZeneca, Bayer and others? Today, there are three lists, one for professional growth, one of the endangered species and one for amateur cultivation. The latter two should be removed. The pros list are basically only hybrids – which means that you can not take next year’s seed from his crop. Furthermore, it not only be forbidden to sell other seeds than those already mentioned, but also to grow. “File sharing” in the area of seeds will become a criminal act. This means that people be even less able to influence what you eat, when you can not even decide what to grow. It also means that the varieties that are historically interesting will disappear, even varieties that can withstand our climate, because the market is too small for the majors to be interesting. This means that poor people who live off what they grow is referred to in the seedtrades discretion in terms of pricing, which can be costly where there are few players.

    If this law is enacted then I intend to break it at every opportunity for the rest of my life and I encourage all others to do the same. 
    Just imagine the conversation….
    well, I got 5 years..
    wow! What did you do?

    I kept some seeds from my flowers in the garden….

    I would die for that right!

  • Complete and utter lunacy!

  • Seth Gottberg says:

    This is just an utter destruction of basic human and natural rights. If Europe does ban keeping yoru seeds, then they are banning their own culture. If Europe has ‘any’ culture they are proud of they will stop.

  • ivana reitano says:

    I do not agree with this legislation at all.
    People have the freedom to grow their own crops…plus the varieties historically interesting are there to survive.
    No one has the right to own or control Mother Nature…
    Please be conscious and drop this madness.
    Kind Regards.
