U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey White denied the motion for a preliminary injunction in the Roundup Ready sugarbeet case last week. This decision allows growers to continue planting Roundup Ready sugarbeet varieties across the United States this spring.


"This ruling provides clarity that farmers can plant Roundup Ready sugarbeets in 2010," said Steve Welker, Monsanto Company's sugarbeet business manager. 


On March 5, Judge White held a hearing to decide if preliminary injunctive relief was necessary or appropriate, pending completion of the remedies process later this summer.
