Thank you Melisa for sharing this article and raising what will inevitably become an ethical dilemma with farming practices in the years to come. Big business with heavily invested interests in food production will certainly lean towards controlling their agricultural and manufacturing output as much as possible. This may be one way to help meet specific targets and quotas. We should be very concerned though, that this does nothing to support our now heavily fragmented ecosystems that have been damaged from widespread pesticide and neoinoctinoid use that has swept western society in support of a food industry that cares only of output and meeting demand. I have not seen the show but I understand that is the theme; control and manipulation by those with means, of even the most natural, innocent and authentic lifesystems that have existed only to benefit the natural resources of this planet. It’s troubling indeed.
