List of Companies Monsanto Hides Behind to Sell you Seeds

This is a list of companies that Monsanto has bought, created or owns controlling interest and uses their names to decieve the public.

If you owned a company and had to lie to people about the name of your compay to sell you items, wouldn't that make you have second thoughts?

I think the list should be posted--Thanks for posting the website, HEBGB!

Seed sources - avoiding Monsanto products


I found a list of seed companies that either buy seed from Monsanto or are owned by them. So these are labels/companies to AVOID.

For information on the seed monopoly/concentration problem, here's a good albeit somewhat dated paper outlining the companies involved: http://www.non-gm-farmers.com/news_print.asp?ID=2549

(This list has been compiled by some diligent mothering gardeners. If you have any corrections or additions post them here.)

* Territorial Seeds
* Totally Tomato
* Vermont Bean Seed Co.
* Burpee
* Cook's Garden
* Johnny's Seeds
* Earl May Seed
* Gardens Alive
* Lindenberg Seeds
* Mountain Valley Seed
* Park Seed
* T&T Seeds
* Tomato Growers Supply
* Willhite Seed Co.
* Nicholís
* Rupp
* Osborne
* Snow
* Stokes
* Jungs
* R.H. Shumway
* The Vermont Bean Seed Company
* Seeds for the World
* Seymour's Selected Seeds
* HPS
* Roots and Rhizomes
* McClure and Zimmerman Quality Bulb Brokers
* Spring Hill Nurseries
* Breck's Bulbs
* Audubon Workshop
* Flower of the Month Club
* Wayside Gardens
* Park Bulbs

I have learned one of the ways to sniff these names out. Call the support number and tell them you were calling about another company. If they transfer you........it is most likely Monsanto. A reputable company only has one name.
