What is terminator gene technology?

What is terminator gene technology?The terminator gene is a specific genetic sequence inserted by scientists into a seed’s DNA that renders the seed and the crop it produces sterile. The seed company initiates the terminator process before selling the seeds by adding an inducer. Farmers plant seeds, grow plants and the harvest matures but the seeds are sterile. Patented by the USDA and Delta and Pine Land Co., now owned by Monsanto, this terminator technology has no agricultural or economic benefits for farmers or consumers, except to protect intellectual property rights and to squeeze more money out of dependent farmers.
