Monsanto will pay $350,000 to settle class actions over its genetically modified wheat with farmers in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.

The lawsuits stemmed from discovery of genetically modified wheat on an Oregon farm in May 2013. The wheat had not been approved and the discovery prompted Japan and South Korea to temporarily suspend orders.
