Applying For Syngenta Corn Settlement
I just finished applying for the Syngenta Corn Settlement.
It's a lot easier if you reported acres to FSA. You just allow the settlement people to access your FSA info.
Although I have not been in the farm program for many years, I was reporting acres up until 2014 just in case ....It was handy to have all the CLU acres broken out, but I still had to enter every single CLU by hand. I didn't see any way for the settlement people to accept years 13-14 and 14-15 but hand enter the rest so I just did them all I was able to reconstruct the remaining years acres pretty easily.
Someone with a lot of rented acres, changed acres, moving waterways and fences around and so forth might have a nightmare.
I never planted the Syngenta corn so I hear that means my cut is higher than those who planted. I don't know.
How long will it take to hear back? No idea.
How much will I get? I guess something,but can't say how much. Some say it depends on how many apply.
