Africa is under the threat of having all its seeds destroyed by hybridization and Genetic Modification.

Since the early 1950s, the American government and the Rockefeller Foundation, have been working on turning natural seeds into patented seeds and IP owned by private biotech companies to weaponsize food and use it as a tool for the United States to control the world.

By destroying natural OPV and heirloom seeds and creating dependency on hybrids and GMOs, private companies take away Africa’s right to produce food and adapt their seeds.

As a result, farmers are forced onto a pay as you go system every season, buying seeds which need synthetic fertilizers and pesticides to grow and they are unable to save seeds to replant next season.

Additionally such seeds are not adapted to the climatic, soil and pest conditions in a particular area, hence they die when climate changes and they need huge amounts of pesticides to help them survive pest invasions.

Yet, if farmers used OPV or heirloom seeds and organic fertilizers with living organisms in them, those organisms would be natural predators on the parasites and pests to control and reduce diseases and pests.
