Area farmers consider suing Syngenta

McLEOD, MEEKER COUNTIES, MN – A group of lawyers is encouraging Meeker County farmers to join in suing Minnetonka-based seed producer Syngenta, the Hutchinson Leader reported.

Texas litigator Mikal Watts visited Litchfield, Hutchinson, Glencoe and several other area communities recently to explain his case. At issue is a genetically-modified seed that Syngenta allegedly sold to US farmers before obtaining permission from China to export it there. China reportedly rejected corn with traces of this type of seed, which effectively increased US corn supply and caused prices to fall.
