In this episode I talk about how Canola originated from Rapeseed and the history behind this amazing plant. Recently a movie about the legal battle between a farmer and Monsanto was released in theaters this past week. Centering around the illegal usage of Roundup Ready Canola by Percy. Farmers across the country have been outraged about the inaccuracies that this story presents to consumers. The worst part being making a movie about Canola and having the movie poster picture being a farmer standing in a Corn field. You already know I have some thoughts on this story.
