Black farmers in the Mid-South region surrounding Memphis used science to uncover a multi-million sc

Black farmers in the Mid-South region surrounding Memphis used science to uncover a multi-million scheme to put them out of business and steal their farmland, WMC News reported Tuesday.

At the Mid-South Farm and Gin Show show in March of 2017, African-American farmers believe that Stine Seed Company purposefully sold them fake seeds.

Thomas Burrell, president of the Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Association, explained how black farmers were receiving one-tenth of the yield as their white neighbors.

“Mother nature doesn’t discriminate,” Burrell said. “It doesn’t rain on white farms but not black farms. Insects don’t attack black farmers’ land…why is it then that white farmers are buying Stine seed and their yield is 60, 70, 80, and 100 bushels of soybeans and black farmers who are using the exact same equipment with the exact same land, all of a sudden, your seeds are coming up 5, 6, and 7 bushels?”

The results were so stark, resulting in millions of dollars in losses, the farmers took their seeds for scientific testing by experts at Mississippi State University.

1. Never thought of that.

Many farmers, no matter their race, have ground someone else wants (cheap) and it would be so easy for a seed company to sell someone bad seed or coming to think about it a fertilizer applicator to apply water instead of fertilizer.

I have seen with my own eyes how a certain someone conned; lied, withheld information to get someones farm away from them. They did it to a few farmers. It worked. Everyone was white btw.

2. the raw story link is "file not found."

it is impossible for a scheme like this to work under capitalism, where competative yet god fearing execitives know that to keep customers and open new markets only the greatest products will be sold and sayisfaction guaranteed.

i wish the farmers well but the corporation can keep this in the courts forever, while a year, rwo ar most, with yields like that put a family farm in foreclosure.

probably last years seed. some will sprout but not many.
