A dozen Arkansas rice farmers have been awarded nearly $48 million in a jury verdict against German agricultural powerhouse Bayer CropScience. The trial took place in Lonoke Circuit Court in Lonoke, Arkansas.
The jury’s historic decision provided much-needed economic relief as a result of the losses they suffered due to the contamination of the commercial rice supply by Bayer’s experimental genetically modified rice.
