Crop Insurance, Ag Law, and Dicamba

A mass tort (or group of individual lawsuits) happens when a number of cases are consolidated in a single court and evidence is shared between the cases. If you've been injured in a case that is - or may become - a mass tort, it's important to deal with a law firm experienced at handling these complex cases.  These cases include damages to farms, property owners, and consumers from resulting from products, actions, or in-actions of others such as in farm inputs or products, fire damage, pharmaceutical products, defective medical products, statutory damages for mass torts, personal injury, car crashes (wrecks), traumatic brain injury cases, and whistler blower cases.

Besides working on Crop Insurance issues, fraud, and other Ag Law issues, we are also working on the Dicamba Issues.  Dicamba is a powerful and volatile herbicide that has a tendency to move offsite, reducing other farmers’ crop yields. For this reason, dicamba was not approved for on-crop use until late 2016, after Monsanto and German chemical company BASF developed new formulations of the herbicide that would (ostensibly) be less prone to volatilize.  Farmers are filing lawsuits seeking compensation for losses caused by dicamba. But despite these new formulations, dicamba misuse complaints are piling up in more than twenty states, most prominently in Arkansas and Missouri. One possible explanation is that many farmers still use the old formulations of dicamba (brand names: Banvel, Diablo, Oracle, and Vanquish), which are not approved for on-crop use. Another theory is that the new formulations of dicamba are no safer than the old ones.  Whatever the reason, farmers in more than twenty states are suffering heavy losses to their crops, and the volatile herbicide dicamba appears to be responsible. As a result, many farmers have filed lawsuits against herbicide manufacturers seeking compensation for their losses.  Consequently, Farmers are seeking justice through Lawsuits.

In 2009 Syngenta released a new strain of corn seed into the United States market before receiving import approval from China. Without import approval for this strain, known as Agrisure Viptera (MIR-162, a type of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO)), China rejected U.S. corn shipments in 2013 and 2014, causing a global collapse in U.S. corn prices. The export market disruptions with China cost U.S. farmers billions of dollars.  That is over 92% of all individual claims filed in the United States. This lawsuit will be handled on a contingency basis with absolutely no legal cost or other cost to the farmers, if they agree to litigate the claim.  Also, failure to pursue your claim in a timely manner may result in a complete loss of your rights should you fail to act before the statute of limitations expires.  All U.S. corn growers, regardless of whether or not they planted Syngenta seed, were impacted by this market disruption. In addition to individual farmers, landlords, elevators, transporters, and others in the supply chain may be able to file a claim in order to be made whole by Syngenta. Thousands of corn farmers across the United States have already filed suit, as have large agricultural companies including Cargill and Archer Daniels Midland.
