AAI/NFU send Bayer/Monsanto merger report to DOJ

The American Antitrust Institute and the National Farmers Union are among three groups that have sent the US Justice Department a report on the proposed merger between Bayer and Monsanto.  The groups’ letter says the deal would likely harm competition, farmers and consumers.

Their analysis focused on three major markets:  cottonseed containing genetic traits, markets for crop traits such as herbicide tolerance and insect resistance, and, the effect of the merger on research and development.

The other group involved in the report is Food & Water Watch.
