Monsanto Company Research Report

With last season's drought impacting farmers and their livelihood, Monsanto has
come up with a new corn product -  DEKALB  Genuity DroughtGard Hybrids. This is
Monsanto's latest tool to help farmers manage drought conditions.  DEKALB 
drought-tolerant corn plants have a deep, strong root system to help withstand
drought conditions and reduce yield loss. The DroughtGard Hybrids combines the
drought-tolerant genetics of the DEKALB brand with the industry's first
drought-tolerant biotech trait and agronomic practices. For this coming 2013
planting season, the farmers of the Western Great Plains will have the first
opportunity to plant DroughtGard Hybrids via a stewarded commercial
introduction. Sustainable agriculture is what Monsanto stands for - providing
farmers with novel ways to get more out of each seed. The company's seeds,
biotechnology trait products, and herbicides provide farmers with solutions that
improve productivity, reduce farming costs and produce better food for consumers
and provide better feed for animals. The Full Research Report on Monsanto
