A class action lawsuit filed by a group of Black farmers who were allegedly sold fake seeds will move forward, a judge decided.
The next hearing to present more facts involving bogus seeds sold to Black farmers by the Stine Seed Company is scheduled on Jan. 3, the Commercial Appeal reports.
The farmers say the proof that they were sold inferior seeds that cost them millions of dollars in sales is in the lack of crops they produced. With the help of science testing experts at Mississippi State University, the farmers discovered that the seeds they were sold were impotent. The farmers believe they are being purposely targeted in a multi-million dollar scheme to take their land from them.
