Bayer & Corteva sue each other


Corteva AgriScience and Bayer CropScience have filed lawsuits against each other over the use of certain herbicide traits.

Bayer filed suit against Corteva first, alleging Corteva breached contractual obligations to Bayer related to the development and commercialization of E3 soybeans. In a statement to Brownfield, Bayer says they believe Corteva practiced Bayer technology in its product development.

In its suit, Corteva alleges Bayer is infringing upon one of its patents on a gene used in Enlist® Corn that encodes a unique herbicide resistance enzyme and is part of their Enlist® Weed Control System.
