Dicamba Soybean Grower Settlement

Settlement Structure: Claims Made

Active: Open

Case Summary:

Monsanto and an Executive Committee Council (ECC) are choosing to settle a multi-district litigation consolidating cases relating to the Monsanto herbicide dicamba. Dicamba is meant to be used on dicamba-resistant crops. However, the complaints against Monsanto alleged that it can spread to other fields nearby and can cause damage to other crops, particularly soybeans. This settlement is intended to resolve the claims of soybean growers for dicamba damage to their commercial crops for growing years between 2015 and 2020.

Docket Number:

MDL No. 2820, 1:16-cv-00299

Company: Monsanto Company

Proof of Purchase:

You must provide extensive documentation for your claim. Please see the claim form for details. If you previously submitted a Plaintiff Fact Sheet for the litigation, you may make reference to it for some of that documentation.

Eligibility:

You may be eligible if, during the crop seasons from 2015 to 2020, you produced soybeans for commercial purposes, and your soybean crops during any of those years showed symptoms of dicamba damage, due to dicamba use by other parties on dicamba-resistant soybeans or cotton crops.

Typical Settlement Amount:

Payments will vary based on information submitted. The formula for calculating payments takes into consideration the acres that were damaged, your ownership interest in
them, and the USDA/NASS average price of soybeans in your state. See the Settlement Agreement for details. Also see the FAQ at https://www.dicambasoybeansettlement.com/Home/Faq.
