He did correct this, and said he meant pesticides rather than Roundup
I wasn't surprised because it also happens in the Philippines. To get
a loan or some other forms of support from the government, many
programs require farmers to adopt a technology package, which includes
seeds and chemicals. Industry as a lot of ways of "encouraging"
