Two links for you to check out. The first is GRAIN, a fantastic international organization “which promotes the sustainable management and use of agricultural biodiversity based on people’s control over genetic resources and local knowledge”.
The second is a link to the book Good Crop/Bad Crop written by GRAIN’s Canadian coordinator Devlin Kuyek. The blurb: In Good Crop / Bad Crop Devlin Kuyek deftly examines the economic and environmental background of the modern seed trade from a Canadian perspective. Historically seeds were viewed more as public goods than as commodities, and plant breeding objectives were widely shared by scientists, governments, and farmers. Now that approach is changing; seeds have become increasingly commodified, and plant breeding has become subject to corporate priorities.
