Syngenta Settlement

As you are no doubt aware, a tentative settlement in the amount of $1.51 Billion has been reached between Syngenta Corporation and Farmers who have been damaged economically as a result of Syngenta’s premature marketing of two genetically modified strains of corn Agrisure Viptera® and Agrisure Duracade™ that were outlawed in China. The preliminary settlement is pending in the multi-district litigation in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas.

If you are a member of the class eligible to receive recovery from the settlement, you must file your claims with the Court-Ordered Settlement administrator no later than October 12, 2018.  The official website for processing your claims is found here, or you can go directly to the website www.cornseedsettlement.com. You can print the claim forms, or file them directly on-line.  Please note that any crop share landlords that you have MUST FILE THEIR OWN CLAIM Form.  Please inform any such landlords and provide them with this information as well.

If you are a current client of our firm, and have questions about filing your claim, or if you are seeking to file a claim, please contact Patrick Douglas at (573) 471-1000 or at pdouglas@blantonlaw.com
