GMO Corn Lawsuits – Join us at our Town Hall Meetings
September 24, 2015
Farmers across America proudly provide crops to millions of Americans and people around the world. International agricultural exports account for a significant portion of farmers’ income for a wide range of crops. For example, 40% of corn produced by U.S. farmers is exported internationally. When GMO corn sold by Swiss-based company Syngenta caused China to reject all corn shipments from the U.S. in late 2013 and throughout 2014, the U.S. corn industry sustained billions of dollars in losses. Although the enhanced corn allegedly accounted for only 3% of our nation’s crop in those years, there was no way to keep it segregated from the massive amount of corn produced across the country. China’s refusal to accept millions of bushels of American corn caused a dramatic drop in the price of corn that affected hundreds of thousands of corn farmers across the country.
