North Carolina Farmers with Syngenta Corn Claims

North Carolina Farmers with Syngenta Corn Claims

Many farmers and farm business in North Carolina may have be eligible to file lawsuits against agricultural chemicals-maker Syngenta for the company's knowledge of China's rejection of corn seed Agrisure Viptera.

Farmers in at least 20 states have now filed lawsuits against agricultural chemicals-maker Syngenta.  At issue is Syngenta's sale of a corn seed called Agrisure Viptera, which was genetically altered to contain a protein that kills corn-eating bugs such as earworms and cutworms.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture approved it in 2010, and Syngenta first sold it to farmers in 2011.  China, a growing importer of U.S. corn that refuses to buy genetically modified crops it hasn't tested, had not approved Viptera when Syngenta began selling it.  In November 2013, China discovered the Viptera corn in U.S. shipments and rejected U.S. corn imports in 2014.   The rejection resulted in serious loss of income and revenue for many U.S. and specifically North Carolina Corn Farmers.

The National Grain and Feed Association estimated losses to United States farmers and farm businesses for the corn in the range of $1 billion and $3 billion.  Farmers who did not even plant the Syngenta seed, claim they lost money because of the Chinese boycott of U.S. corn and corn byproducts.

At O'Malley Tunstall, PLLC Joe Tunstall runs our Products Liability and Class Action section where we routinely handle claims such as those for North Carolina Farmers with Syngenta Corn Claims. From either our Raleigh or Eastern North Carolina offices, we handle litigation throughout North Carolina including Federal Claims. If your Farm lost money due on Corn in 2014 call our office and let Joe discuss whether it makes sense to pursue your losses.
