Two lawsuits have been filed in U.S. District Court in Omaha against the owners of a closed ethanol plant in Mead, Nebraska and their management. One complaint was filed jointly by Corteva, AgReliant, Beck’s and WinField United; the other was filed by Syngenta. This plant used treated seed that could no longer be planted. The ethanol company did not properly handle the treated seed or the waste products it produced, abandoned the site and refused to participate in the cleanup.
