Information About Syngenta Corn Lawsuits

Farmers across the nation have initiated lawsuits against Syngenta over its Viptera GMO corn trait, alleging that Syngenta failed to consult with and get approval from China before it sold this type of corn seed to U.S. farmers. The lawsuits allege that, because of this, China’s ban on U.S. corn imports due to GMO contamination caused all U.S. corn farmers financial losses. Even farmers who did not plant Syngenta brand corn are potential claimants, because cross-contamination caused China to ban all U.S. corn imports for a time.

Syngenta Corn Litigation

Swiss company Syngenta did attempt to block litigation over GMO corn contamination, but in September 2015, a federal court judge denied the attempt, allowing litigation to continue.

Information About Syngenta’s Corn Seed

The specific type of corn seed that started this whole controversy is seed with the MIR162 trait, marketed as Agrisure Viptera in 2009 and Agrisure Duracade more recently. This particular trait, a GMO, makes corn resistant to certain pests. While Domina Law Group takes no public stance on the GMO trait itself, it was what caused China to reject shipments of U.S. corn.

Syngenta GMO Viptera Seed Claims

Because of cross-contamination, the farmers that were adversely affected by the GMO Viptera seed were not just the ones who planted that seed. All corn farmers and sellers across the U.S. may have been negatively affected by Syngenta and may have cause to file a claim to recover losses.

Why did China reject U.S. corn shipments?

China initially blocked all U.S. corn imports because it had not completed a review of the GMO trait. Syngenta allegedly did not wait to get approval from China before selling corn seed with this trait to U.S. corn farmers. China ended its five-year review of the corn seed in December 2014.

Dos and Don’ts for Corn Farmers

  • Syngenta claims are not as easy of a “money maker” as some attorneys have led farmers to think, so don’t bank on a recovery.
  • Do not get discouraged. Domina Law Group believes that Syngenta eventually will settle, it’s just that the amount is uncertain.
  • Don’t plan on funding for your next quarter with Syngenta lawsuit money.
  • Do be cautious, but at this point, there is no cause for concern that counter claims will be filed against producers.

If you or anyone you know is a corn farmer or seller, we encourage you tocontact Domina Law Group to discuss your potential financial recovery today!
