The Organization for Competitive Markets recently wrapped up their annual convention. One of their primary concerns is the increasing consolidation in U.S. agriculture. OCM President Mike Callicrate says they’re closely watching proposed mega-mergers between ChemChina and Syngenta, Dow and DuPont and Bayer and Monsanto.
He says while its good Senator Chuck Grassley is calling for a hearing next month to examine those mergers, he doubts if it will result in any action.
Callicrate says wealthy corporations are driving these mergers and trying to stop them is becoming almost impossible.
Callicrate says Dianna Moss of the American Anti-Trust Institute spoke at their convention outlining the various concerns with the mega agricultural mergers.
