“Mr. Seed, a foul mouthed, organic seed evangelist sheds some light on the fact that today most seeds that grow our food are bred by agrochemical companies to be chemically dependent. Six chemical companies control 63% of the seed market, and their combined R&D budgets are 15 times higher than all U.S. public spending on agricultural research.”

An educational film commissioned by the Clif Bar Family Foundation’s Seed Matters organization. Concept by The Butler Bros. and directed by Buck.
