AGRA works to achieve a food secure and prosperous Africa through the promotion of rapid, sustainable agricultural growth based on
smallholder farmers. Smallholders--the majority women--produce most of Africa's food, and do so with minimal resources and little
government support. AGRA aims to ensure that smallholders have what they need to succeed: good seeds and healthy soils; access to markets,
information, financing, storage and transport; and policies that provide them with comprehensive support. Through developing Africa's
high-potential breadbasket areas, while also boosting farm productivity across more challenging environments,
AGRA works to transform smallholder agriculture into a highly productive, efficient, sustainable and competitive system, and do so
while protecting the environment

Monsanto is a chemical company posing as an agricultural company specializes in toxic, dependency-creating, genetically-engineered crops and pharmaceuticals. Monsanto is one of the world’s most notorious multinationals that has been caught red-handed for bribery, false studies and evaluations, and paying off scientists for favorable reports. It has been responsible for over 10,000 farmer suicides and thousands of poisoned sheep in India alone. Its GE products are banned in countries including in Europe after painful experiences.
In June 2007, Monsanto acquired Delta & Pine Land Company, a company that had been involved with a seed technology nicknamed “Terminator”, which produces plants that produce sterile seed to prevent farmers from replanting their crop’s seed, and are instead forced to continue purchasing seeds from Monsanto for every planting. In recent years, widespread opposition from environmental organizations and farmer associations has grown, mainly out of the concerns that these seeds increase farmers’ dependency on seed suppliers (having to buy these each year for seeding new crops)
