Minnesota has joined the federal government and 10 other states in an anti-trust lawsuit against Syngenta and Corteva, alleging those pesticide manufacturers of using “loyalty programs” with distributors to keep generic competitors out of the market.  Attorney General Keith Ellison says ag producers aren’t the only people hurt by what he labels “corporate profiteering”:

“They also hurt Greater Minnesota communities because they’re driving people either out of business or squeezing those small farmers’ profit margins.”

Ellison says every Minnesotan who uses farmers’ products ends up paying higher prices.
