An agriculture chemical company faces a $102,000 federal penalty for mislabeling pesticides at facilities in Nebraska and Missouri.
The Environmental Protection Agency said Syngenta Crop Protection of Greensboro, N.C., will pay the civil penalty for violations at its facility in Omaha, Neb., and at a farm supply retailer in Savannah, Mo.
The EPA said in a release Tuesday that its inspections last year in Omaha found that Syngenta had received imported shipments of a fungicide that was not properly labeled.
The agency says another inspection last year at a company in Savannah, Mo., found a bulk tank of a Syngenta herbicide that lacked a required warning label.
The EPA said Syngenta has changed its practices to prevent similar violations.
The company didn't return a call seeking comment.
