“…the natural habitat and the animals that control the mosquito larvae are destroyed.”
As I travelled through Argentina for my research for Farmageddon, I got a taste of what it’s like to be eaten alive by mosquitoes!
In places, the mosquitoes seemed to be out of control. I learned how they appear to be spreading with the ever-expanding green deserts of GM soya. Vast monocultures doused with agrochemicals to keep pests at bay seem to also be disarming nature’s own defences leading to an upset in the ecological balance.
In this short film, I talk to people on the ground in Argentina to find out what’s going on with soya, much of it destined for export to feed industrially reared animals in Europe.
