Continued Demand Makes Monsanto and Agriculture Unique Investment Opportunities, Global Seeds and Traits Lead to Tell Investors
Date:3/17/2010

ST. LOUIS, March 18, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As world population growth and dietary shifts continue, Monsanto Company's (NYSE: MON) ongoing investment in agriculture is bringing more choices to the farm than ever before, Brett Begemann, executive vice president – seeds and traits, will tell investors today at the Nomura Global Chemical Leaders Conference in Dublin. Those choices will help farmers around the world meet growing global demand for grain.

"Given the projections for global population growth and increasing dietary demands, the case stands to either grow more food on more acres or increase yields on the same acreage to meet the increased need for grain," Begemann will say.  "With limited arable land, this future demand must be met through improvements in yield per acre.  Simply put, the world is going to need to produce more with less, and that's what we help farmers do."

Begemann will discuss Monsanto's target of helping farmers double 2000 yields in corn and soybeans by 2030 through technology, which has driven Monsanto's investment in biotechnology and breeding.  "Combined with the germplasm libraries and molecular markers Monsanto has developed, this has equipped the company with the tools to deliver the highest-yielding, best-performing seed," Begemann will say
