DuPont settles more Benlate suits

DuPont has agreed to settle several lawsuits over its fungicide, Benlate (benomyl), relating to alleged birth defects and crop damage. The company has been contesting numerous lawsuits since the early 1990s and withdrew Benlate from sale worldwide in 2001 (Agrow No 375, p 1). It has incurred costs of some $2,000 million over these disputes and recovered about $275 million through insurance.
