WOD Chemical, a multinational corporation, sold genetically altered seed of wheal to several farmers. However, one year later, an employee of the corporation with the help of an investigation, which was conducted by the inspectors and the police, found out that there was a problem. He discovered that because of cross-pollination, in the crop of farms that did not buy grain from corporation, but they are located close to those farms that purchased seed, genetically modified wheat is found. Because of this fact, the farms that bought the seed of corporation believe that the neighbors farms got large modified crop free of charge, and they require to resolve this issue.
On the other hand, farmers, in the harvest of which modified wheat appeared, are dissatisfied. These farmers explain it by the fact that they are not satisfied with such a harvest, they are interested in growing only natural, wild wheat. This situation has caused еру resentment on both sides. On the one hand, farmers, who bought wheat seed, want the neighbors to pay the money for the new altered crop.
On the other hand, the owners of neighboring farms are outraged and demand from the corporation to compensate them the caused damage. An employee of WOD Chemical should solve this difficult issue and provide a report to the head office of the corporation. Thus, the problem is whether it is ethically acceptable not to pay the compensation to farmers, who received genetically modified crop, because in fact, it is not the fault of the WOD Chemical corporation, and it will allow to keep the finances of the corporation or whether another solution to this problem should be found. A serious problem of this case is the fact that Indian buyers of altered seeds are outraged, because the nearby farms received the modified crop for free.
However, the issue is more difficult that it seems. Upon closer inspection, from an ethical viewpoint, it becomes clear that the real victims are the owners of the neighboring farms. These farmers grow wild wheat and are not interested in altered cultivars. Due to the fact that neither the corporation, nor the farmers, who had bought the modified seeds had not thought the consequences and the farmers had sowed the seeds, cross-pollinated occurred and thus, the crop of the neighboring farms became partly genetically modified, and partly natural.
