US bans GM sugar beet planting

A US court has banned the planting of Monsanto/KWS Saat’s genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready sugar beet. Judge Jeffrey White of the US District Court for the Northern District of California issued the ruling on August 13th. It annuls the USDA’s 2005 deregulation of the GM crop, but does not apply to crops planted before August 13th. Those crops can be harvested and processed and the sugar can be sold. Crops grown for seed can be harvested and the seed stored for future use.
