Moss Talks Ag Consolidation on NPR

From the interview of Diana Moss for “Farmers, Antitrust Activists Are Worried That Big Ag Is Only Getting Bigger” on NPR on October 18, 2016:

“The proposed mergers could well increase prices for biotechnology, eliminate choices for growers, slow down innovation and raise food prices to consumers,” Moss testified.

Moss says she opposes a system where three companies control four out of every five corn seeds sold in the world.

“This isn’t only happening in agriculture or biotech — it’s happening in many other sectors,” Moss warns. “We have sort of an epidemic of declining competition in the U.S. and internationally. We have major sectors dominated by just a handful of firms.”
