Living on Earth: Round Up Ready Alfalfa

Earlier this week, I received an email from Jessica Ilyse Smith, journalist and producer of the Public Radio International show, Living on Earth. Jessica got my email address as a result of my participation in the Agricultural Law blog, part of the Jurisdynamics network of legal blogs.

Jessica was working on a story about the case of Monsanto Co. v Geertson Seed Farms and wanted an overview of the case and its implications. I was honored to oblige, and you can listen to the program, now available on the Living on Earth website under the Judging Biotech Seeds heading. I just completed a companion post on Agricultural Law that describes the case. It involves the commercial sale and planting of genetically engineered alfalfa seed.

Living on Earth is commended for reporting on this important case.
