    Monsanto wins leading soybean seed replicating case to the relief of biotechnology industry

    Indiana farmer Bowman used harvested soybeans containing the Monsanto technology to plant his crops.

    In a decision that drew sighs of relief from the biotechnology industry, the US Supreme Court ruled that an Indiana farmer violated agribusiness company Monsanto Co’s patent for a type of soybean. The court agreed unanimously with Monsanto that Vernon Bowman, 75, had performed an end-run around the law when he used the company’s patented soybean seeds without seeking a licence.
