Colonialism trough the agriculture.

Well, this post will be relationed with an article that it`s topic is the incorporation of a trde between foods barons of the agriculture and smallholder in Africa. In the article this option is showed as one chance to the littles producers due to keep them make better profits. Between the reasons that backed this thesis we can find the posibility to the farmers of get agricultural technology, like inorganic fertilizer and GM - modifyed genetically- seeds that this parnertship could meant, on fact one the companyes interested in this deal is Monsanto. The article argued that the most of the  African`s solis are infertile, and that with that technology is possibly fertilizer such soils,  of this way the littles producer could be incorporated to the business chain of  the "first" world. There are many curiuos aspects and that show the colonialist logic with which have operated the named "first world". In first place there are not intererest in pass technological knowledges to the farmers or to the africans population for they can do free used of such knowledges, of this way it do dependent to producers from that continent of the products done by this transnational company. In second place we found the troubles that have had this kind of products due to have been proved that such products are highly toxic causing seriuos troubles for the human health. In third place we can found the UPOV 91, this is an agreement that protected no only to the manufacturer of a modifyed genetically seeds with a kind of patent, lately such agreement protect to the plant and fruit grown of this of this seeds, the which are legally recognized like belonging  to such company. In Chile many seeds were sold to Monsanto, it due to that reason that actually the framers must sold such seeds to Monsanto, this seeds  moreover are infertiles that means that the plant grown from this seed don`t give seed for this reasons to do the new crops the farmer must sold again such seeds to the company. This is the trouble caused when the econonomical logics are put over commons interests until arrive to the point that where the only important are the unilateral suplies without  considerer the interest of the other part. The concepts that underlies to this kind of actions such as competition are very dangerous. By other hand this kind of political subtract economical autonomy  to the farmers because make them requer money for get such product before make them less dependent of the money.
