Cargill fires first shot in legal battle over GMO trade responsibility

Cargill Inc's [CARG.UL] lawsuit against Syngenta AG over rejections of genetically modified U.S. corn by China may be just the start of legal challenges against global seed makers over trade with one of the world's biggest markets.
