Lawsuits against Seed Maker mounting Nationwide
Farmers in Ohio, Minnesota, Kansas, and in states across the country continue to file lawsuits against the Swiss company Syngenta. These farmers, as well as the grain exporters Cargill Inc. and Trans Coastal Supply Co. claim that Syngenta’s decision to sell a certain genetically modified corn seed before it had been approved by China has resulted in substantial monetary losses.

As a result of Syngenta’s decision to sell the seed before China had approved it, China had banned all U.S. corn imports because of the possibility it could be contaminated by cross-pollination with Agrisure Viptera. Since then, China has approved the import of the seed, but it’s much too late for farmers claiming dramatic losses in profit and a drop in the price of corn.
Events leading up to Lawsuits against Syngenta
Agrisure Viptera was approved for planting in the U.S. in 2010. Syngenta then asked China to allow its import. But they began marketing and selling the seed before getting approval from the country. China halted all imports of American corn in 2013.
