U.S. Supreme Court Lifts Ban on Sale of GM Crop

The U.S. Supreme Court has lifted a four-year ban on sales of genetically modified alfalfa, which farmers fear contaminates others crops.

In 2007, a California district court judge blocked the company Monsanto from selling alfalfa seeds that it had genetically modified to resist its Roundup weed killer.

Yahoo News reports:

“The ruling was upheld on appeal in 2009, but Monsanto went to the Supreme Court arguing that any decision should have awaited the findings of a study by the Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).”
