If there’s one thing the internet ought to be good for is bringing together people with a desperately narrow interest who would never have met each other without it.
So, in that spirit, I’m going to try to gather the Fake Seed-heads out there into a kind of informal network.
Have you ever:
- Worked on an Agricultural Development project that distributed seeds that didn’t germinate?
- Gotten burned buying seeds that were labeled hybrids but didn’t seem to be genetically uniform?
- Spend big bucks on fertilizer that didn’t seem to help plants grow at all?
- Learn of unscrupulous traders in your area adulterating agro-chemicals or dying seeds?
If you or a project you’ve been involved in has dealt with seed or fertilizer counterfeiting directly, I want to hear from you.
