Annul the agreement with Monsanto to promote hybrid maize seeds in Nepal

The introduction of Monsanto seed products into Nepal will have disastrous consequences for the people of Nepal. Nepali farmers will be forced into a relationship of dependancy with Monsanto Company. Farmers will be worse off economically, soil and land will be irreversibly damaged with the need for increased use of fertilisers thus decreasing chances of future livelihoods in farming and food production. Nepal's international trade will also suffer. Please help us to stop this USAID program going ahead and prevent Monsanto from controlling the seed and controlling the people in Nepal.
