Organic Farmers Lose Lawsuit Filed Against Monsanto

Organic growers filed a lawsuit against Monsanto Company to stop the agricultural company from suing them if their crops inadvertently become contaminated with seeds from Monsanto’s patented crops. Monsanto previously told organic farmers that the company would not file suit if trace amounts of the biotech crops were found mixed in with the grower’s crops. It is difficult for organic farmers to stop cross-contamination that occurs from Monsanto crops without their knowledge.
