excerpt
BEIJING - The aggressive expansion tactics adopted by foreign seed companies in China have increased concerns over the nation's food safety especially at a time when agricultural yields have been falling.

Though the situation is far from alarming, domestic seed companies need to wake up to the threat and build necessary safeguards to retain their market share, agricultural economists said on Wednesday.

Worries surfaced after prices of some agricultural products spiraled in the past few months, and also amid concerns that the prevailing weather vagaries will impact yields over the next few months.

China should be worried, anyone who hasn't should learn about Monasanto and the growth of Western seeds. a lot of them are very damaging.. This is a company that tried to market seeds that could only be used one year and then they basically commit suicide to ensure you have to buy most of their seed every year making the farmers addcits to thier product. Protecting the healthy of your countries food suppy is vital to all countries...
