Court blocks Monsanto’s Roundup Ready alfalfa
But what about Buckwheat, you rascals?: The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld an injunction barring Monsanto from selling its Roundup Ready alfalfa seed until the government completes an environmental impact study on how the genetically modified product could affect neighboring crops. "This is a major victory for consumers, for farmers and for the public as far as protecting their rights and the rights of farmers to sow the crop of their choice and consumers to eat the food of their choice," said George Kimbrell of the Center for Food Safety, a plaintiff in the case. Kimbrell said that Monsanto's chances of getting Supreme Court review of the case were "slim to none and slim just left town." Heh. (Reuters)
