I did not use Syngenta’s Viptera and/or Duracade corn seeds; can I still submit a claim?
Yes, all farmers who planted corn in 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016 have a potential claim.
I have crop insurance. Am I still able to file a claim?
Yes, even if you had crop insurance for your 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016 crops, you still qualify to submit a claim against Syngenta.
How much damage did Syngenta do to the Corn Market?
According to a pair of Joint Statements issued by the NGFA and the NAEGA, the economic impact of Syngenta’s premature launch of Viptera is estimated to result in a loss to the U.S. grain market of between $1 billion and $2.9 billion, along with its premature launch of Duracade costing an additional $1.2 billion to $3.4 billion.

How much will I be compensated?
Because we will file each claim individually, you will be compensated based on how many acres and/or how many bushels of corn you grew. The NGFA and NAEGA, using an “extremely conservative” model, estimated a $0.22 per bushel loss, but also noted reports of corn losses of $1.00 per bushel.

How much do attorneys charge?
With us, there are no unknown costs. 40% is the most you will ever be charged, including all fees and expenses. This is different than many other attorneys, where not all costs are included in the fees. This means more money in your pocket.
Why should I choose you to represent me?
The attorney you choose to file your claim is important. We will file your claim individually and work with you one-on-one. We believe handling your claim individually is important so that you are compensated for your farm’s damages (including future losses) due to Syngenta’s poor business decisions.
Join the thousands of farmers who have already filed a claim against Syngenta.
Farmers across America who sold corn in 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016 are eligible.
You do not have to have planted or harvested Syngenta corn products to be eligible.
No matter how many acres or bushels you produced – if you sold corn during the 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016 season, your crop prices were most likely affected by Syngenta’s decision to prematurely market its seeds before gaining international approval from all of the U.S.’ major trading partners, including China.
You may also be eligible if you did not grow corn, but suffered a loss in income due to the market’s decline. Anyone in the corn industry who has suffered a loss due to lower corn prices may be eligible to file a claim for compensation. Examples of people or companies eligible to make a claim include:
- Grain elevators
- Landowners leasing their land to corn farmers
