Can someone please explain that if a farmer who doesn't grow GMO but gets contaminated by GMO from other areas can be sued by the GMO companies?

While it is important for technology providers to protect their patents and agreements relative to seeds, where trace amounts of patented seeds or traits are present in a farmer's field as a result of inadvertent means (e.g., pollen drift), the technology providers do not exercise their patent rights.
