DOJ Probe Of Monsanto’s Genetically Engineered Soybean Business Continues

January 14, 2010: 03:38 AM EST
Continuing its probe of Monsanto’s soybean business, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has issued a civil investigative demand (CID) requesting information from Monsanto on its soybean traits business, primarily seeking a confirmation that farmers and seed companies will have access to the first-generation Roundup Ready genetic trait following patent expiry in 2014. The company, which said it is cooperating with DOJ, recently confirmed that Roundup Ready soybeans would remain available after patent expiry so that the soybean market is not disrupted. Farmers use Roundup Ready soybeans because they contain a gene that makes them immune to the herbicide Roundup.
