Steve Marsh is a Western Australian farmer who sued his neighbour Michael Baxter for ‘reckless’ harvesting of GM (genetically modified, genetically engineered) canola (oilseed rape, rapeseed, Brassica napus). Some GM canola seeds ended up on Mr Marsh’s land. Mr Marsh doesn’t grow canola but due to a ‘zero tolerance’ policy, he lost organic status from 75% of his land.
Today we hear that Mr Marsh lost the case. Another legal victory for Monsanto.
I’m grateful to eqfe for drawing my attention to the news.
