Monsanto (NYSE:MON) Prepares for Oral Arguments in Alfalfa Ban Case Before Supreme Court

The ban on Monsanto (NYSE:MON) alfalfa seeds, which has been for three years, is finally about to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, and the biotech seed company is preparing for oral arguments after filing their final reply brief with the Court.

Roundup Ready alfalfa has been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and first entered the market in 2005.

The genetically modified alfalfa seed is resistant to Roundup weed killer.

Early in 2010 the Supreme Court said they'll hear the case to determine whether or not to overturn the ban of the alfalfa seed, which has been in force since 2007.
