    I notice USC stands for Unitarian Service Committee. Does donated money go to programs other than seed collection?

    In many areas companies like Monsato have a monopoly on seed supply and do not allow farmers to use any seeds other than their own. How effective are you in light of big agribusiness's vice-like grip on seed supply? And what can you, or are you trying do to overcome it?
