Submission + - Monsanto's 'terminator' seeds set to make a comeback (nature.com)

ananyo writes: "Monsanto and other biotechnology firms could be looking to bring back 'terminator' seed technology. The seeds are genetically engineered so that crops grown from them produce sterile seed and prompted such an outcry that, as slashdot noted, Monsanto's chief executive pledged not to commercialize them. But a case in the US Supreme Court could allow farmers to plant the progeny of GM seeds rather than buying new seeds from Monsanto, making the technology attractive to biotech companies again. Some environmentalists also see 'terminator' seeds as a way of avoiding GM crops contaminating organic/non-GM crops."
