Corn Farmers Battle With Syngenta Begins….Minnesota Farmers Are Next.

The first of tens of thousands of U.S. lawsuits over Swiss agribusiness giant Syngenta’s introduction of a genetically engineered corn seed variety is underway in a Kansas federal courtroom.

Another trial involving about 60,000 cases begins next month in Minnesota.

The lawsuits allege Syngenta introduced the seed variety to the U.S. market before China approved it for imports, wrecking an increasingly important export market for U.S. corn and causing price drops.

Syngenta disputes the claims.

Kansas and Minnesota will be major indicators as to how this will be resolved.
