Campbell v. AG Finder Iowa Nebraska
Iowa Court of Appeals
2004 WL 893937 (2004)
Frank Campbell (plaintiff) contracted to sell his soybean crop to AG Finder Iowa Nebraska (AG Finder) (defendant), which intended to resell the soybeans in Europe. The contract called for the soybeans to be low in humidity and free of the genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) that European buyers deemed unacceptable. Before delivery, Campbell sent two crop samples to AG Finder, which tested the soybeans for moisture content, but not for GMOs. AG Finder accepted delivery even though the soybeans exceeded the contract’s moisture specification. AG Finder subsequently shipped the soybeans to Europe. The European buyer rejected the shipment after running a simple test to determine that the soybeans contained GMOs. AG Finder belatedly revoked its acceptance of Campbell’s crop and refused to pay Campbell the full contract price for his soybeans. Campbell sued. The trial court applied Iowa’s Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and found, after a bench trial, that AG Finder had no grounds for revocation. The trial court entered judgment for Campbell. AG Finder appealed to the Iowa Court of Appeals.
