UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT DAVIS
 

The dean of the University of California at Davis’ College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences recently acknowledged that roughly 20 percent of the college’s $165 million annual research budget comes from industry. (Scola, N. Monsanto U: Agribusiness's Takeover of Public Schools, AlterNet, 2/15/08)

According to the Sacramento Bee, UC-Davis has received grants from Syngenta, DuPont and Bayer. (Knudson, Tom and Bee, Lee Mike. “Biotech industry funds bumper crop of UC Davis research,” Sacramento Bee, 6/8/04. p.A1) Monsanto is a financial sponsor for many UCD projects (McDaniel, Mike. “Genetically engineered crops come under fire at UC-Davis,” University Wire, 9/30/99) In the fiscal years 2003 and 2004 businesses, agricultural marketing boards and private interest groups contributed $43.9 million or approximately 10 percent of the total financial support for on-going research.
