A few hours ago, Food Integrity Now spoke with Jim Gerritsen, President of the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (“OSGATA”). Jim Gerritsen, representing the lead plaintiff, OSGATA, spoke with us about this ground-breaking case filed with the Supreme Court today. The Plaintiffs, 73 American organic and conventional family farmers, seed businesses and public advocacy groups, asked the U.S. Supreme Court today to hear their case against Monsanto Company challenging the chemical and biotech seed giant’s patents on genetically engineered seed.
Gerritsen shares what this precedent-setting case could mean, how it would affect farmers and our global food supply, and the importance of getting the case heard by the Supreme Court.
