Dicamba Drift Class Action Lawsuits

Class action lawsuits have been filed on behalf of farmers in at least 10 states who suffered crop damage as a result of “dicamba drift.” Monsanto is accused of negligence for selling Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® — a new genetically-modified (GMO) soybean that was engineered to resist Roundup (glyphosate) and dicamba spraying.

Monsanto sold Xtend seeds before the EPA approved Monsanto’s drift-resistant formula of dicamba, warning farmers that actually using dicamba on the crop would be illegal and subject to a $1,000 fine.

Unfortunately, the temptation to kill weeds and boost profits was too great. Farmers throughout the U.S. sprayed dicamba illegally in 2016, causing at least 200,000 acres of crop damage in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

A farmer in Arkansas who lost 400 acres of soybeans said:

“It’s like putting ice cream in front of a kid and telling them they can’t eat it. All these farmers heard when it came to this system appears to be ‘higher yields’ and ‘dicamba-resistant’. The temptation has outweighed the consequences in this case.”

The class action was filed in February 2017 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri — In RE: Steven W. Landers, et al v. Monsanto CompanyCase No. 1:17-cv-00020.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing a dicamba class action lawsuit. Instead, we are investigating injuries related to dicamba exposure side effects.

About Class Actions

Dicamba class actions have been filed for farmers who suffered crop damage as a result of dicamba drift — but not farmers who experienced health problems as a result of exposure to dicamba. Class actions are useful when everyone who joins the lawsuit has a relatively similar legal claim and is willing to share the payout. However, class actions have drawbacks for personal injury claims.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Our lawyers specialize in filing lawsuits on behalf of people who were injured by toxic chemicals, defective products, and more. There is no excuse for selling any type of dangerous chemical without warning people about health risks, especially severe side effects like cancer.
