Monsanto prevails against Syngenta

Syngenta Seeds had alleged that the technology used in YieldGard Corn Borer infringed claims of certain of their patents. Monsanto Company stated that it first brought insect-protected corn to the marketplace in the form of YieldGard Corn Borer in 1997.

-->"The jury's finding in this case is further confirmation of the fact that Monsanto's scientists were the first to invent this important technology. This legal victory will help ensure that Monsanto can continue to deliver important crop-improvement technology, such as crops improved with synthetic Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) genes, to growers in the United States and abroad." <--
