Supreme Court hands win to Monsanto—OKs planting GM alfalfa

The U.S. Supreme Court, ruling in favor of Monsanto Co., overturned a judge's ban on the planting of alfalfa seeds engineered to be resistant to the company's Roundup herbicide.

The justices said a federal judge in San Francisco went too far when he placed a nationwide ban on so-called Roundup-ready alfalfa seeds because of the possibility they would contaminate other plants.    [San Francisco Chronicle (Bloomberg), Monsanto Wins as Court Backs Alfalfa Seed Planting, 6/21/2010]
