Cargill filed a lawsuit against Syngenta Seeds Inc in Louisiana state court

RESERVE, US: Cargill filed a lawsuit against Syngenta Seeds, Inc in Louisiana state court, seeking damages from Syngenta for commercializing its Agrisure Viptera (MIR 162) corn seed before the product obtained import approval from China. Cargill’s grain export facilities in Reserve and Westwego, Louisiana loaded the vessels that were destined for and rejected by China.

“Unlike other seed companies, Syngenta has not practiced responsible stewardship by broadly commercializing a new product before receiving approval from a key export market like China. Syngenta also put the ability of US agriculture to serve global markets at risk, costing both Cargill and the entire US agricultural industry significant damages,” said Mark Stonacek, President, Cargill Grain & Oilseed Supply Chain North America.
