You’ll notice that some of the things alluded to in this article as to what will happen in the future has already come to pass, such as the approval of GM crops of sugar beets and alfalfa.

In the Pilot Grove case, they finally reached a settlement in Sept. 2008 where the Pilot Grove farmer’s group would give $275,000 to fund local agricultural scholarships and will buy $1.1 million in Monsanto products over the next six years.  (Of course, anyone who buys and uses their seed will be in it for life.) The Pilot Grove Coop would develop and adopt a stewardship policy to avoid future patent infringement and would work with a third-party organization to provide training for employees.
