Unfortunately this Iowa Farmer has decided not to show you the Forgeries that he spoke of. Most likely bought off by the companies who forged his signature. Out of the same respect that he has for me, I will not publish his name or phone number. Tom, I am sorry that you do not have the back bone to stand up for your civil rights. You all could call him except I can not remember his phone number. 319-350-581?
Monsanto's Patent Rights
The Worlds Comments about Monsanto and their Ethics (moral strength) or lack of.
Could Gene Manipulation lead us to a day when one country could spray a terminator gene on an unpopular society or the people and/or companies with seeds refuse to sell that seed to an unpopular society?
Gene Manipulation could be the biggest MENACE to the World since Adam & Eve!
Monsanto's Catch 22, Monsanto is only concerned when the Public and/or Farmers, some of which are their customers, find out about the double dealing Monsanto is doing. Monsanto is actively taking farmers to court, total to date of 525 cases, for saving seed that the farmer produced on his own land. This has been the farmers practice since farming began.
Monsanto is not telling the producer about it's practice of forging or having their sales reps. forge the farmers signature to Release of Claims Forms holding Monsanto and their Distributors blameless and forever discharging them from all damages.
The Posey County Prosecutor said these are Class C Felony Offenses.
I have been provided with some information by Farm Bureau's own personnel ! Monsanto provided the release of claims forms and the co-op's and/or applicators readily forged the signature of count less producers. Also in some cases Monsanto's personnel forged the signature of producers. This has occurred in three states that I know of this far. Indiana, Illinois and Iowa. I have had inquiries from producers in other states and Canada wanting to know if I have a forgery with their signature on it or if I am aware of a forgery with their signature on it.
I wonder who is the most guilty, Monsanto or the producers?
January 5th. 1999---I
am aware in the USA, through Farm Bureau Personnel, of forgeries in Indiana,
Illinois and Iowa. I have been told of an alleged settlement in one of
the cases of $80,000.00 Feb. 10th. 1999 There has been 3 phone calls
from the country of Germany concerning Monsanto.
If you are a Producer, in any Country and/or in any State, and have had to respray a field from 1990 through 1997 and possibly 98 and you did not personally sign a release form There is a forgery with your name on it. Jeff Jarrett, of Monsanto, said, "the Paper Work (Release of Claims Forms) has to be done before any settlements are made". If your Co-op or any other applicator has resprayed any of your fields from 90 through 98 using Monsanto Chemicals please call me Jim Winiger at 812-985-2860 or send E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Help me complete the list below and show the Applicators and Monsanto that producers throughout the world will not tolerate the forging of our signatures.
You must stand up for your civil rights "nobody else is going to" I am pursuing a class action law suit against Monsanto Chemical Co. for all forgeries. This is one issue that we must stand together on !
You may be entitled to a cash settlement !
If you are on Monsanto's Hit List of more than 1000 producers for seed piracy you need to contact me. This may help your case. If you have already settled on the seed piracy issue this action does not violate the terms of your agreement with Monsanto.
Seed Piracy is about stealing from Monsanto!
These forgeries by Monsanto are about stealing from you!
Are you going to let Monsanto do this to YOU.
I am not taking pot shots at this or any other journalist, I am just saying that,
I guess it all depends upon who is stealing from who!! Monsanto is STEALING from farmers and landowners when they and the applicator forge a signature!
Read the forgeries below!
The Posey County Prosecutor, Trent VanHaaften,
said these forgeries are Class C Felony Offenses.
These Forgeries were committed by the Posey County Farm Bureau Co-op
and Monsanto Chemical Co. One was signed by Dee Marshall-secretary for
Farm Bureau. The other was signed by Jeff Jarrett of Monsanto. The signatures
were authorized by Carl Redman, Division Manager for the Co-op, and signed
in his office. Jim Swinney, General Manager of the Posey County Farm Bureau
Co-op., The Posey County Farm Bureau Co-op and Monsanto Chemical Co. are
of Forgery, Accessories to Forgery and
Jim Swinney, Carl Redman, Dee Marshall and Jeff Jerratt are FELONS
Monsanto Mess--Lies & Forgeries
Monsanto, the genetic engineering company included FALSE INFORMATION, to Government Advisers on Safety, about some of their genetically engineered products.
Visit the web sites below to learn more about the SAFETY of Yours and the world’s food.
What Scientists and Public figures are saying about GENE MODIFIED FOODS.
Biotechnologists can exercise little control over the products they create.
Bob Shapiro, Monsanto, "The effects of genetic engineering are Unknown"
Scientists--"We simply do not know what we are doing" "This is a dangerous game of ecological roulette" "The pressure tocut corners is constant and inevitable" "The most powerful technology the world has ever known, and it is being rapidly deployed" "By failing to require testing and labeling of genetically engineered foods, the FDA, has made consumers unknowing GUINEA PIGS" "This is a PANDORA'S BOX and a lot of people wonder whether it's worth opening it" "We are messing with the building blocks of life and it's scary" "Once released into the environment, genetic mistakes cannot be contained, recalled or cleaned up" "Advances in science may result in other means of MASS DESTRUCTION, Genetic engineering is quite a possible area" "It may well ruin our food supply, destroy biodiversith and unleash pandemics of antibiotic resistant infectious diseases" "Certain the widely used cauliflower mosaic virus is a potentially dangerous gene.It is a pararetrovirus meaning that it multiplies by making DNA from RNA messages. It is very similar to the Hepatitis B virus and related to HIV" "If it is left to me, I would certainly not eat it"
It appears that Monsanto will do almost anything to make money, from FALSE INFORMATION to CLASS C FELONY’S—FORGERY

Monsanto & Farm Bureau's Unholy Alliance
Monsanto’s Crop Loss Refund
New Version of an old Policy,Forgery
If you sign their agreements you are GIVING UP ALL OF YOUR RIGHTS for losses inflicted upon you by Monsanto. You are entitled to losses when the chemicals do not work. But you have to prove those losses through comparisons. (good from the bad) Now they do not have to forge your signature, You gave up your rights when you sign up for their programs.
But this keeps Monsanto and the applicators from following their old policy of forging your Signature.
Seed cost Roundup Ready is app. $25 per 50#. If you plant 200,000 seeds per acre, seed requirement will be 71.43 lb. per acre.(AG 4501-avg. seed per # of 2800) The cost of your seed per acre is a Whopping $35.75
You cannot afford to plant this seed !
With the Farm Economy in a state of depression you cannot afford to plant $35.75 seed. Go back to your bin and plant $6.00 seed. This spread of $29.75 per acre is more than your going to make in profit this coming year. Roundup Ready Beans average 2 to 5 bushels less per acre than conventional varieties. (Farm Journal/Mid January 1999) At $5.00 per bushel you loose another $25.00 per acre. You have lost $54.75 per acre just on your seed selection.
If you have to Replant
In my area Roundup chemical is recommended at 1 ½ quarts (48oz.) per acre. $15.84 plus $4.50 application = $20.34 Monsanto’s refunds are (If you follow Recommendations* There is an asterisk here-To me this always means trouble) going to give 24oz. per acre. This looks as if their only giving you ½ of the recommended rate, This means you will have to purchase the other ½ . Your $15.84 is now $23.76 per acre plus 2 applications $9.00 for a TOTAL of $32.76.
Don’t forget the seed cost of approximately $25.00 per 50#. If you are planting 200,000 seeds per acre, Your seed requirements will be 71.43 lb. per acre. The cost of your seed per acre is a $35.75 Monsanto’s replant is $8.00 per bag refund. This is only 1/3rd. the cost of your seed requirement. You again will need to purchase another $23.81 of seed per acre. And don't forget about the 5 Bu per acre yield reduction and/or the $25.00 Total seed cost now is $84.56 per acre.
Don’t forget you cannot go back to your bin and get seed because you signed their paper work.
You total cost for seed and chemical now is $117.31 per acre.
Your banker would pull his hair out if he knew you did this!
Gene altered grain, corn or beans, is not accepted or wanted by some if not most countries of the world. Do not be surprised if you are not allowed to deliver your harvested grain to your local or normal elevator because this grain should not be commingled with normal corn for purposes of export sales. Do not be surprised if US. producers loose more exports to foreign countries due to our mixed grain.
Mr. Farmer this is your WAKE-UP call or is the consumer going to hear you complain about your High cost of production, Low sale price, Loss of foreign markets and the possibility of weeds in the future that you cannot kill.
I do not know about you but I cannot afford these programs.
Monsanto and Farm Bureau you are a DISGRACE to the Farm Community and to all Business throughout the World who are conducting their affairs in an HONEST manner !!
