Kansas corn farmers, and corn farmers across the U.S., are feeling financial strain. Farming brings its challenges, but they have been amplified by Syngenta. The Swiss biotech company developed and marketed a GMO corn seed that many say caused a huge drop in U.S. corn prices.
According to a report by a Kansas news station, KSN, corn prices have dropped in recent years from $7 to a low of $3.50. Many U.S. corn farmers and others involved in the corn industry point to China as the reason for the dip.
China is a major importer of U.S. corn.
The country refused to import Syngenta’s GMO corn, Agrisure Viptera, or MIR 162. At the time, China hadn’t approved the genetic modification. And because of their refusal, those involved in the U.S. corn industry were left without a major market for their product.
