Several groups who resist the introduction of genetically modified seeds has sued the U.S. Department of Agriculture over the decision to allow Monsanto (NYSE:MON) to plant limited amounts of sugar beets.

Allegedly the approval is in opposition to a court ruling in August which disallowed the future planting of genetically modified sugar beets.

This is in response to the USDA giving Monsanto the go ahead to plant sugar beet seeds which werent allowed to go to flower.

If allowed to go forward, supposedly the plantings could contaminate nearby crops, said the complaint.

Monsanto isnt a defendant in the lawsuit, although the case centers around their sugar beet seeds which are resistant to the herbicide Roundup.
