17. So what if all the other farmers in the region grew non-Monsanto seed. One farmer grows

Monsanto seed and they all sell to the local grainery.

The other farmers then buy seed from the grainery. According to Monsanto, now ALL the farmers are planting illegally because their might be some Monsanto seed mixed in.

Unless they can add a visual marker to their seed that allows farmers to inspect and cull Monsanto seed prior to planting their seed, I don't see how they are not granting an illegal monopoly. Not just affecting the seeds themselves but on what the grainery is allowed to sell.
