It’s happening: GMO corn no longer resists insects

GMO Epic Fail, Monsanto Fail, Syngenta Fail, Dow and Dupont Fail! Nevermind the safety issue — GMO isn’t even delivering on it’s much hyped promises. Oooh, gotta protect our patent on our great, non-working Bt corn!

from RTAmerica:

According to farmers in Brazil, GMO Bt corn seeds made by Monsanto, Dow Chemical, DuPont, and Syngenta are no longer resisting pests, namely the corn leafworm, or Spodoptera frugiperda. The farmers want the companies to reimburse them for the three rounds of pesticides they’ve had to spray on top of their GMO crops, since the companies’ products failed to deliver on their promises. The Brazilian government is wary of how dependent its farmers have become on toxic chemicals, and the farmers are worried they’ll no longer be able to plant anything but GMO seeds.

    No shit.
    You should have thought about that in the first place you bunch of idiots. Maybe it’s a bit harsh, but that’s what they are.
    Sometimes i think people really deserve what’s coming to them if they can’t think more than 10 or 20 years ahead.

    Watch! The corps will tell them to just use more Roundup.

    Perhaps this was all a scheme to destroy pest resistance to BT, whether inserted by GM or sprayed on.  Nobody owned it, so it was a patent-free competitor.  But once the pests are immune, everyone is back to conventional chemicals.

    It’s evolution. Any biological system will adjust with time. Their biologists should understand that. If I know the system, they’ll just keep tinkering. One has to accept that there will be crop losses.
