Syngenta GMO Corn Seed Lawsuit News: Two U.S. agribusinesses have filed Syngenta lawsuits this month that allege Syngenta AG’s attempt to commercialize a corn seed product called Agrisure Viptera (also known as MIR 162) has caused them to sustain significant financial losses, The Oliver Law Group P.C. reports. Agrisure Viptera is a genetically-modified (GMO) corn seed product developed by Syngenta that enables plants to produce proteins that ward off pests. While Syngenta says it sought approval of the GMO seed from Beijing in 2010, the product had not yet been cleared for sale in China.

China Rejects U.S. Corn That Contains The Agrisure Viptera Variety

Since November 2013, China has rejected numerous shipments of U.S. corn that contain the Agrisure Viptera variety. According to The Wall Street Journal, the rejected shipments had cost grain companies an estimated $427 million by April 2014, the result of lost sales and reduced prices for China-bound shipments. The controversy surrounding the Syngenta GMO seed has also cost farmers in the U.S. millions, as it has negatively affected the price of corn and soybeans.

Cargill, Inc. Files GMO Corn Seed Lawsuit Against Syngenta

On September 12, 2014, Cargill, Inc. and Trans Coastal Supply Co. filed separate Syngenta lawsuits, alleging the attempts to commercialize Agrisure Viptera caused them lose millions of dollars. The Cargill which filed in Louisiana’s 40th Judicial District Court, claims it has been exposed to more than $90 million in losses. “Syngenta’s continued release, promotion and sale of Viptera has resulted in the contamination of the Cargill Plaintiff’s corn,” the complaint charges. “Given the prevalence of crops grown from the Viptera seed in the U.S. corn supply, the Cargill Plaintiffs can no longer sell U.S.-grown corn to China.” (Case No. 60671)

Trans Coastal Files GMO Corn Seed Lawsuit Against Syngenta

Trans Coastal Supply Company, which filed its complaint in the U.S. District Court, Central District of Illinois, alleges that it could lose as much as $141 million due to Syngenta’s actions. “Syngenta’s motivation in prematurely releasing Viptera corn is greed,” Trans Coastal’s lawsuit says. “If not stopped, Syngenta is going to continue to destroy U.S. exports of corn and DDGs to China.”
