Bayer loses sixth US rice suit

A US court has ordered Bayer CropScience to pay five Arkansas rice farming operations comprising 36 plaintiffs a total of $946,000 in compensatory damages for losses due to contamination with unregistered genetically modified glufosinate-tolerant rice. It is the sixth defeat for Bayer in a series of lawsuits over GM rice contamination in 2005/06. Awards in the previous five cases amounted to some $52.5 million ( Agrow No 596, p 11). The company continues to assert that it acted responsibly and appropriately at all times in the handling of its GM rice. It faces around 500 lawsuits.
