Syngenta GMO Corn Approved by China

gmocornseedlawsuitSyngenta GMO corn has been approved by China for import. A major trading partner with the U.S., China rejected shipments of corn products containing Syngenta GMO corn starting in November 2013, as the country has a policy of testing GMO products before approving them for import.

As a result of China’s rejection, U.S. corn growers experienced financial losses.

It is believed that, after making a large investment in the development of their GMO corn seed, Agrisure Viptera, Syngenta rushed to get Agrisure Viptera to the market, and in doing so, bypassed seeking Chinese approval.

U.S. corn growers who have lost revenue due to halted trade with China have filed GMO corn lawsuits targeted at Syngenta.

According to Reuters, Syngenta may be more likely to settle GMO corn lawsuits over the Agrisure Viptera seed now that China has granted import approval.

The team of class action lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe are hopeful that the newly granted approval will improve the financial situations of farmers across the U.S. through a settlement agreement.

However, Chinese approval comes too late for some U.S. corn growers.
