Monsanto (MON -1.6%) suspends soybean royalty collections in Brazil while it appeals a state court ruling on intellectual property rights siding with a group of growers that a patent on first-generation Roundup Ready soybeans had expired. MON expects appellate courts to decide whether collections can resume over the next several weeks, prior to the start of an actual trial.
