Corn farmers have until Oct. 12 for Syngenta litigation

Individuals affected by the early introduction of Syngenta’s Agrisure Viptera and Agrisure Duracade corn traits have just a few more weeks to file a claim.

In Syngenta MIR162 Corn Litigation, No. 14-md-2591-JWL-JPO (D. Kan.), the Settlement Class Counsel, on behalf of all corn producers, reached a settlement with Syngenta of lawsuits over the Agrisure Viptera and Agrisure Duracade corn seeds and how they were marketed.

"This settlement provides $1.51 billion for corn farmers, landlords, elevators, shippers and other grain handlers and ethanol plants. Anyone in those groups who has not yet filed a claim form with the claims administrator should do so now and must do so before time runs out on Oct. 12, 2018, so they can get paid," the Settlement Class Counsel said.
