Iraqi farmers. biodiversity. country's food security. seed saving will be illegal. the market will only offer proprietary "PVP-protected" planting material "invented" by transnational agribusiness corporations. new legislation in Iraq prevent farmers from saving their seeds and effectively hands over the seed market to transnational corporations. political sovereignty remains an illusion. food sovereignty has been made near impossible.while claiming not to have reversed their position against commercialization of Terminator seeds, some Gene Giants are continuing to seek new patents on genetic seed sterilization.the FAO 2003-2004 Report on the State of Food and Agriculture amounts to a declaration of war on the farmers it is pledged to support.the promotion of Terminator seeds as a "green" solution to GM pollution is the Trojan Horse of biotechnology. if Terminator technology wins market acceptance under the guise of biosafety, it will be used as a monopoly tool to prevent farmers from saving and re-using seed.
