Seed saving is an ancient agricultural practice. Farmers traditionally save a portion of their harvest to plant for the following year. Over time, this practice allows a crop to become adapted to the conditions of a particular area. However, this practice conflicts with the realities of the biotechnology industry. Biotechnology corporations forbid farmers who purchase seed from saving some of their crop for future planting. Furthermore, biotechnology corporations are trying to limit the right of all farmers to save seed. Farmers who have not purchased seed but are found to have GMO plants (regardless of how these plants were seeded) could be prevented from saving seed in future years. The fact that a corporation can control a living entity, in this case a modified variety of canola, has serious implications.
