    Continuous Stalking & Hectoring by the Unethical Trash Guarding DuPont Management

    Folks, we have never claimed Monsanto's line-up of seeds are superior to Syngenta's, or Syngenta's seeds, superior to Monsanto's. All we have said with accuracy, is that much of the DuPont Pioneer seed line-up contains embedded within superior GM traits licensed by DuPont from Monsanto at great cost every year, hundreds of $millions. Without Monsanto's traits, the DuPont Pioneer line-up would be distinctly inferior.

    As you can see from several hostile personal attacks waged by one rabid shill or surrogate for DuPont Management, DuPont people apparently do not want you to know that, and will try to distract your attention when it comes to weighing what they really have on the shelves for farmers. Recall their much touted and ultimately failed first major attempt to develop and commercialise a first-generation GM trait to compete with front-running Monsanto? DuPont OptimumGAP. Went down in flames.

    ...funfun..

    • folks, this purported AG Manager is not here for civil debate; he is here to harass and shill for DuPont Management. He knows full well there is no answer to his question repeated scores of times on various boards, which corn seeds are best. It depends upon geography, climate of the site, soil conditions, farmers' practices and preferences, price, market demand, undsoweiter.

      • Herr Zig, surely you can do better than to send your inferior aliases to heckle me. What's the matter Funfundvierzig? Did I torpedo your excuse? By simply asking how you always compare MON vs. Pioneer seeds but then say you cannot compare MON vs. SYT seeds? Surely by now you realize heckling me and resorting to namecalling is ineffective. It just makes you look SMALL and INSECURE. And tarnishes YOUR IMAGE here.

        Funfundvierzig, you sure seem eager to put this question behind you. But it’s not going away:

        Funfundvierzig, RESPECTFULLY, which corn seed traits are better, MON’s or SYT’s, and why?

        Tell us Funfundvierzig, tell us!

      • Funfundvierzig, so how can you say Pioneer seeds are inferior to MON's if it depends on geography, climate of the site, soil conditions, farmers' practices and preferences, price, market demand, undsoweiter? You have NO trouble comparing DD's Pioneer corn seeds with MON's corn seeds. If what you said is true you'd NOT be able to make the Pioneer vs. MON comparison you post repeatedly. So if you can compare Pioneer and MON seeds then surely you can also compare corn seed traits for MON and SYT. To insist otherwise would show you’ve been LYING all this time about Pioneer vs. MON corn seeds.

        Looks to me like you are just trying to worm your way out of answering a legitimate question. Why is that Funfundvierzig? I asked you to make the comparison because you say you’re here as an "unbiased independent reporter and blogger" to help SYT investors by providing competitor info for them. You say you’re a longtime owner of MON and SYT shares. Who better than a longtime owner of both companies like you to know both companies' product well and make the comparison?

        Funfundvierzig, you sure seem eager to put this question behind you. But it’s not going away:

        Funfundvierzig, RESPECTFULLY, which corn seed traits are better, MON’s or SYT’s, and why?

        And heckling me or trying to change the subject directly or through your aliases like Ag_ameNN_mon won’t change things. With each passing day your IMAGE erodes further. Did you LIE about your reason for being here? Are you here solely for the purpose of BASHING DuPONT? maybe if you came clean with the truth you wouldn’t have people questioning you about MON and SYT. The truth will set you free Funfundvierzig.

        Meanwhile:

        Funfundvierzig, RESPECTFULLY, which corn seed traits are better, MON’s or SYT’s, and why?

        Tell us Funfundvierzig, please tell us!

      • Finally a good answer. You are correct and I stand corrected!

        I just work in DuPont Ag. I don't have a freaking clue what happens in the marketplace, as you can tell.

        Please forgive my asinine comments and I'll take a 30-day hiatus from Yahoo. PROMISE!

    • Folks, you are witnessing another classic Funfundvierzig diversion. Avoid the important question and continue to ramble on about DD instead. Funfundvierzig, indeed you have never claimed MON's seeds are superior to SYT's or SYT's seeds are superior to MON's. Nor has anyone ever said you did. That's one reason I RESPECTFULLY asked you this question:

      Funfundvierzig, which corn seed traits are better, MON's or SYT's, and why?

      Had you previously answered the question there'd be no need to ask would there? Herr Zig, you claim to be an independent reporter and blogger here to provide IMPORTANT competitor info to SYT investors. You also claim to be a longtime owner of MON and SYT shares. A longtime owner like you must surely be very familiar with products of both companies by now, right? So with your expertise why aren’t you able or willing to compare the traits as requested? You’ve had months to think about it.

      Such info would be far more important to SYT shareholders than your usual rantings about DD. Yes, we get it. You think DD products are inferior. But what about MON’s products compared to SYT’s? You always call MON a superior managed company. So they must be a more dangerous competitor to SYT than DD. Then here’s your chance to help your fellow SYT investors by telling everyone:

      Funfundvierzig, which corn seed traits are better, MON's or SYT's, and why?

      This question is not going away. Don’t you agree it’s important for SYT investors to know this info about their biggest competitor? Herr Zig your IMAGE as an “unbiased independent reporter and blogger” here to provide important competitor info to SYT investors erodes more every time you avoid the question. It makes readers think that maybe you have an ulterior motive and agenda. Like bashing DD? Here’s your chance to show them if that’s true- or not. We’re still patiently waiting Zig.
