Former Managing Director of Monsanto India Blows the Whistle – Monsanto Faked Data for Approvals

• Farm Wars
Question: These industries are very opaque. What was the internal culture of Monsanto like? Did you really conduct any internal tests at all? Answer: Yes, as far as herbicides are concerned, we did do some internal tests, but sometimes we used to just produce foreign data — not location specific Indian data — and the Insecticides Board just accepted it. They had no means of verifying what we gave them. We did some demonstrations, but we never had any controlled plots for research or anything elaborate like that.

 This is not suprising coming from the makers of Agent Orange. How many vets are still suffering from it or should I say how many have survived it and are still suffering? Big money always means big corruption.
