Report: China rejected Syngenta corn cargo from U.S.

|By:, SA News Editor

China reportedly rejected a cargo of U.S. corn because it contained a genetically modified variety not approved for import; the shipment was said to contain Syngenta's (SYT -0.4%) Agrisure Viptera corn.

Earlier this year, Monsanto (MON) ran into trouble when an unapproved GMO strain of wheat it had devloped showed up in a farmer's field in Oregon.
