Last earnings report was pretty dismal too. If you look at some of Geri (Geudetti's?) writings, Monsanto has been big in pushing an, I believe genetically engineered, seed type varient which is infertile and generates NO seed after the growing season. This would force farmers to rely on Monsanto for the next years seed crop. I have no problem at all without Monsanto doing poorly, in fact we might be a lot better off if they went out of business.
