Big Business in Little Seeds -The Propaganda of Food

Fewer pesticides, higher yields - this is the message of the genetic engineering lobby. But is it true? Doubts, criticisms and problems are mounting all the time. But the lobby is increasing the pressure on politicians and governments and wants to extend its network worldwide.

This reportage provides an insight into the controversial campaigns of the genetic engineering lobby and shows the role that the goal of profit maximization across the entire value added chain is playing - from the seed to the pesticides and onto the end agricultural product.
