This contribution of GMO companies was not known so far but it appears that their help has helped greatly in finishing the traditional organic farming system of Bhaarat. As soon as Bhaarat became independent, the Political leaders destroyed the Tenancy system of farming that was functioning beautifully till then Due to Tenancy (or anti-tenancy) Act, the farmers became fully dependent on inhuman banking system for their agricultural needs (of cash) and middlemen (i.e.दलाल) in selling their production to consumers made them destitute soon. It appears now that the first year increase in yield of the GMO seeds (based on the fertility of soil) made the farmers dependent on costly (and every time need of purchase) seeds so that they became destitute. With these three agencies after the ignorant farmers, they have no other alternative to committing suicides. Our agriculture department probably was unaware about these happenings, was it?
