Monsanto (aka Seminis) Owns These Seed Companies

Here's the list of Monsanto-owned seed companies for those of you who are trying to avoid GMOs. Seminis sources are listed below the Monsanto listings.

In general, I don't order from most of these companies anyway and suspect that you don't either. I do recognize them as the companies that send lots and lots of catalogs with discount offers.

Hello, I work for Fedco Seeds and can assure you that Fedco does not sell Monsanto/Seminis products. They were phased out in 2005. Please see this link for more info on our position: We would appreciate it if you would update your blog statement to reflect this truth.

Thank you! I wondered about those last ones she listed. I'm going to remove the last paragraph completely. I buy from Fedco and Moose Tubers and will continue to.
