Ironically, the pesticide was not a Syngenta product. Lorsban is produced by Dow and was probably being used in developmental benchmarking research.

The claim that the company “failed to tell the workers to avoid the fields, and then allowed them to enter the fields without protective gear” is highly suspect, in my view.

In full disclosure, I work for Syngenta. PPE and safety communication are ubiquitous. When contract workers are used (as it sounds that they were), however, it is often difficult to instill an equal appreciation and adherence to safety policies. Not saying that’s what happened here, just that there is probably far more to the story.

At this point in the discussion, I agree with you.

Señor Presidente :" In full disclosure, I work for Syngenta. PPE and safety communication are ubiquitous."

Isn't Syngenta in talks now about buying Monsanto (seed genetics, GMO, and pesticides) ?

I’m sure no trespassing was done and this couldn’t have been a pre-planned ambush that went wrong (or maybe just as intended).
