ADM Sues Syngenta Over Rejections of GMO Corn By China

ADMlogo2Archer Daniels Midland Co. has sued seed company Syngenta AG over rejections by China of a genetically modified corn variety not approved for import by Beijing, according to a report from Reuters.

The lawsuit alleges that Syngenta commercialized the MIR162 corn variety, also known as Agrisure Viptera, without enacting reasonable stewardship practices to ensure the grain would not be shipped to markets that have not approved it.
