STOP THE BAYER-MONSANTO MERGER
Mega-merger would hurt farmers and rural communities
The mega-merger between Bayer AG and Monsanto Co. would take corporate consolidation of our agricultural sector to yet another dangerous peak — creating the “Big 3” companies when just two years ago, there were six major rivals.
The merger eliminates competition and reduces the choice and negotiating power of family farmers. The result would be an even more difficult market for family farmers, and it will lead to higher costs for farmers and consumers.
Farmers deserve choice and freedom in what they plant, and this further consolidation only intensifies the corporate take-over of family farms and rural communities.
We urge the Department of Justice to block this unfair and dangerous merger.
