http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/monsanto-takes-next-s...Monsato sued a farmer who replanted soybeans purchased from his local elevator figuring that most would have the herbicide resistant trait. This means he avoided the license agreement seed purchasers sign agreeing not to replant first generation seeds from their Monsanto seeds.The issue has gone to the Supreme Court. Monsanto argues that getting around their patents this way would end commercial seed research because they could not make the investment pay off.(But this applies only to soybeans where research has not increased yield much. No one plants their harvested corn. Only hybrids give competitive yields.)
