Terminator technology--the genetic modification of plants to produce sterile seeds--is a global threat to food security, to poor farmers, and to biodiversity. ETC group is campaigning with civil society organizations worldwide for a ban on Terminator, which has been condemned by civil society, scientific bodies and many governments as an immoral application of agricultural biotechnology.
ETC group has produced a new brochure for CSOs and policymakers, which offers a brief and up-to-date summary of the issues, a list of eminent organizations and individuals who have publicly stated their opposition to Terminator seeds, and a map illustrating where Terminator patents have been issued or applied for.
Bulk orders of the 2002 Terminator brochure are available to civil society organizations that would like to educate members of the public and policymakers. To request copies, please contact: email@example.com
