US GM sugar beet stay extended

A US appeals court has extended its stay of a lower court’s order for the destruction of genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant sugar beet that was planted under USDA permits covering stecklings (seedlings). The stay by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals was due to expire on December 23rd ( Agrow No 606, p 16). It has been extended until February 28th or such other time as the Ninth Circuit orders. The Court of Appeals has consolidated the permit litigation with the industry appeal of Judge Jeffrey White’s August 2010 decision to annul the deregulation of Monsanto/KWS Saat’s Roundup Ready sugar beet ( Agrow No 598, p 19). The appeals are due to be heard in early February, the Sugar Industry Biotech Council reports.
