Former congressman and practicing attorney Bill Enyart and Texas attorney Mikal Watts are joining forces to represent farmers across Illinois and the country.
“In 2013, corn prices plummeted thanks to the underhanded practices of Syngenta,” Enyart said. “We’re working to get our farmers the money they deserve for their hard work and their quality crops.”
Syngenta, a seed corn producer, failed to lawfully register GMO produced corn with foreign entities like China and the European Union. As a result, thousands of tons of corn from farmers across the country were deemed unsellable – bringing the price per bushel to record lows.
Farmers and those interested in learning more about the issue are invited to attend a public forum at 8 a.m. Monday, March 23, in the Reed Building, Faculty Staff Dining Room, at Lewis and Clark Community College, 5800 Godfrey Road, Godfrey.
