Taking Monsanto to Court

The past several weeks have not been good for Monsanto. In the US, organic farmers are taking the chemical company to court over their genetically modified seeds. In France, a court has found the American agribusiness giant guilty of poisoning of a farmer. In India, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research is launching an investigation into the alleged genetic contamination of the indigenous cotton crop. Meanwhile, reports are coming out detailing problems with Monsanto’s products and practices. Still, Monsanto stock has been up. Genetic engineering of food and agricultural products is happening everywhere. The question is whether this technological innovation is doing more harm than good.
