GMO Corn Rejection / Lawsuit Information

Below is a breakdown of Syngenta's actions which have contributed to financial losses:

  • 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.
