75 year old vs. Monsanto, farmer sees lawsuit reach U.S. Supreme Court

75-year-old soybean farmer sees Monsanto lawsuit reach U.S. Supreme Court

Who controls the rights to the seeds planted in the ground? A 75-year-old farmer takes the agricultural giant to court to find out

As David versus Goliath battles go it is hard to imagine a more uneven fight than the one about to play out in front of the US supreme court between Vernon Hugh Bowman and Monsanto.

On the one side is Bowman, a single 75-year-old Indiana soybean farmer who is still tending the same acres of land as his father before him in rural south-western Indiana. On the other is a gigantic multibillion dollar agricultural business famed for its zealous protection of its commercial rights.

>that is awesome!  i will say a prayer for Mr Bowman.. as long as there are still good men and women willing to stand against evil we have hope.

Yes, I will devote a meditation for the farmer's success, also.

For all home gardeners, visit the list of Monsanto-free seed companies put together by Occupy Monsanto at http://www.occupymonsanto360.org/2012/03/06/monsanto-free-seed-comp...

Vote with your pocketbook if you can!
