Organic Farm Group Sues Monsanto, Seeking Protection From GMO Contamination

Acting on behalf of more than 50 organic farmers and seed dealers, the Public Patent Foundation (PUBPAT) has brought suit against biotech agricultur giant Monsanto.

It’s a preemptive suit, designed to ensure that Monsanto can’t sue the farmers and seed dealers once the inevitable happens and genetically modified (GMO) pollen contaminates their crops.

The USDA has recently approved GMO sugar beets and alfalfa; upwards of 90 percent of the US corn and soybean crop were already GMO.
