Corruption of agricultural inspectors
Inhumane agricultural policy

Unfair collaboration among farmers
Agriculturalists, sometimes under pressure from their employers, have adopted practices which lead to the underreporting of hazards to animal populations, especially as a consequence of excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides, and of environmental pollution and radiation. There is little peer control of irresponsible genetic manipulation and introduction of exotic animal species. Agricultural scientists participate in monopolistic practices designed to create user dependency on high-yield hybrids.
