Abstract: One of the controversial issues nowadays in the world is the effectiveness of the genetically modified Foods (seeds). Many articles come out daily showing the negative impact of such seeds on the human health, while we can see the recognized and authorized health agencies licensing these kinds of seeds. This paper is addressed specially to tackle the impact of adopting such kind of seeds on Iraqi Farmers, and how was the situation before the American Inversion? I would also like to articulate this case to find out some possibilities to fix what has been provided in the new Iraqi Patent law. It is also important to mention, that we need to increase the people awareness of this types of food.
