GMO Corn Rejection / Lawsuit Information
Below is a breakdown of Syngenta's actions which have contributed to
- In 2010, the USDA approved Syngenta's Agrisure Viptera, a genetically
modified corn seed that contains a genetic trait called MIR 162. Although
Chinese regulators did not approve MIR 162 for import, Syngenta claimed
that China would soon approve the GMO corn and began selling the seed
to farmers. China later rejected shipments of Agrisure Viptera and did
not approve the GMO seed until December 22, 2014.
- Syngenta also developed Agrisure Duracade, a second-generation GMO corn
strain that also contained MIR 162. Agrisure Duracade was not approved by China.
- In response to Chinese rejection, the National Grain and Feed Association
and the North American Export Grain Association issued a joint statement
for Syngenta to suspend sales and commercialization of its GMO corn until
China and other markets gave approval. Despite the warning, Syngenta continued
to sell Agrisure Viptera and Duracade.
- Syngenta GMO corn cross-pollinated non-GMO corn and contaminated many U.S.
crops. Farmers allege that they were not properly advised by Syngenta
on how to avoid cross-pollination.
- Farmers, exporters, and others involved in corn and grain distribution
who did not directly work with Syngenta GMO corn also suffered losses
as a result of the depressed market.
