      A United States federal jury ruled on 4 December 2009 that Bayer must pay $2 million US dollars to two Missouri farmers after their rice crop was contaminated with an experimental variety of rice that the company was testing in 2006. This verdict confirms that the responsibility for the consequences of GE (genetic engineering) contamination rests with the company that releases GE crops.



      Includes pic of demonstration in India.



      This is an excellent precedent setting ruling.



      We need to move towards global adoption of this ruling.



      Best wishes to all,

      Frances
