Date:12/14/2007

DEKALB Genetics Show More Than 12 Bushel Per Acre Yield Advantage in Key

Maturity Zone

ST. LOUIS, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Harvest data from across the United States showed that farmers who used DEKALB(R) corn seed stacked with YieldGard VT Triple(TM) from Monsanto Company (NYSE: MON) saw double-digit yield advantage over competing seed corn brands and technologies in 2007.

Data from nearly 1,700 on-farm field trials showed an average of more than 14.6 bushel per acre advantage for DEKALB YieldGard VT Triple compared to Pioneer varieties which included Herculex Xtra. In Iowa, Illinois, and Nebraska, the DEKALB YieldGard VT Triple advantage grew to 15.0, 16.9, and 17.2 bushels per acre respectively.

"These yield figures show the powerful and tangible results that come about when elite germplasm and biotechnology combine," said Jim Zimmer, U.S. Branded Business Lead for Monsanto Company. "For more than 70 years, DEKALB products have stood for strong roots and yields and our results in 2007 really underscore that statement."

DEKALB Genetics Outshine Competitors

Genetics from DEKALB brand seeds yielded an average of more than 8 bushels per acre over competing genetics according to 2007 harvest results. This margin widened to more than 12 bushels per acre in the 110-day maturity zone, the selection most often used in top corn producing states in the Corn Belt. Other zones also saw significant yield advantage from DEKALB genetics, including:

-- 7.8 bushels per acre, 95 RM Zone

-- 10.4 bushels per acre, 100 RM Zone

-- 5.1 bushels per acre, 105 RM Zone

-- 5.5 bushels per acre, 115 RM Zone.
