the danger of treating seed as a manufactured product is that in case of failure, we don't have enormous stockpiles of food as insurance. nor are the "manufacturers" required to maintain huge funds to compensate farmers in case of a widespread problem. monsanto, as one example, is now "too big to fail", as with the banking giants.
From the page: "Critics warn that the advance could lead to the cloning of historical species such as mammoths and sabre toothed tigers" :)
"Field studies find lower productivity with GM seeds" //

it sounds like monsanto engineered some soya to be resistant to weed killer, so they could sell soya and weed killer... not so farmers could grow lots more soya.
