Chemical company fined for illegal pesticide spraying

Posted: Updated:

Chemical company, Monsanto, pleads guilty to illegal pesticide spraying in Hawaii.

The company will pay $10.2 million dollars in fines for spraying the banned chemical on crops in 2014.

The case also included a felony charge for illegally storing "acute hazardous waste," but that charge will be dropped if Monsanto meets the court's terms, including an environmental compliance program.

In an official statement, Bayer says that Monsanto "did not live up to its own standards or the applicable laws,".
