In 2013 and 2014, Syngenta sold farmers genetically modified corn seed prior to obtaining approval for import from Chinese officials. China's subsequent refusal to import millions of bushels of corn cost U.S. corn producers billions in revenue. Corn producers across the U.S. suffered devastating financial impact in the resulting decrease in market value of corn in the U.S.
Syngenta GMO Corn Litigation
Farmers throughout the U.S. have initiated a lawsuit against Syngenta and various grain trade companies for the negligent commercialization and marketing of Agrisure Viptera and Agrisure Duracade GMO corn seed, and its devastating financial impact on U.S. growers.
Syngenta made assurances to U.S. farmers that these seeds would soon obtain approval. Unfortunately, those assurances were false, as China did not approve the GMO corn before the devastating financial impacts of the failure to obtain approval were felt.
