Farmers are Shunning GMO Crops

By | Consumer protection, GMO, Uncategorized

gmo_corn_class_action_lawsuitAs worrisome concerns increase about consuming and using genetically modified organisms (GMOs), farmers are turning to non-GMO seeds. There are several reasons for this transformation, most of which directly hit the farmer’s wallet.

  • When a GMO crop is planted next to a non-GMO crop, there’s a chance that the companion GMO herbicide will inadvertently hit the traditional crop. The accidental spray renders the harvest unable to be sold as a “traditional” or organic crop.
  • Corn and soybeans are usually fertilized through pollen in the air. When both kinds of crops are in the same vicinity, it’s next to impossible to prevent cross pollination. Once the non-GMO crop is contaminated with the genetically modified one, it can’t be sold as non-GMO. This creates hardships for the farmer because GMO grains go for a lower price in the market place.
  • Finally, famers have been noticing that newly resistant weeds are growing in the fields with GMO plants treated with partner herbicides. If the seed\chemical combination isn’t’ working, it doesn’t make sense to pay more for the GMO seeds.

Selling crops at a lower price than expected, or having crops rejected for containing genetically-modified material significantly impacts farmers’ livelihood.

GMO Corn Seed Lawsuit: Take Control of Your Legal Situation

By | Consumer protection, GMO, Uncategorized

gmo_corn_class_action_lawsuitImagine working through the whole corn growing season. Imagine putting in those long days.

Then, once your corn product is ready to go to market, imagine the financial stress of receiving word of your corn product’s rejection or price reduction.

Frustrated U.S. Corn Growers

Many U.S. corn growers experienced financial loss in the past several years. Their losses are the result of using Syngenta GMO corn seeds; losses also stem from cross-pollination of their non-GMO corn product with a nearby field of GMO corn.

For corn growers who used Syngenta corn seeds, financial losses resulted from rejected corn exports, particularly when attempting to export to China.

Corn growers also experienced financial losses as a result of their non-GMO corn product being substantially reduced in price due to cross-pollination with GMO corn crops.
