In March 2018, the terms of a $1.51 billion settlement with Syngenta and U.S. corn growers, grain handlers, and ethanol plants was formally announced. This class action settlement involves claims that Syngenta was negligent in failing to gain approval in China before releasing the Viptera and Agrisure corn varieties. When these corn varieties were detected in shipments to China, the shipments were rejected, with a subsequent a drop in the price of corn in 2013. This settlement could have future implications on how new biotechnologies are released on the market. Join Professor Kershen as he highlights how future biotechnologies could be impacted by this settlement.
