  • 5. Emerging Crop Technologies are Poised to Help Address Global Challenges Agriculture’s Environmental Footprint • Nitrogen-Use efficiency crops Global Food Security • Enhanced productivity • Higher-Yielding crops • Sustainable production Water Availability • Drought-tolerant crops • Partnering to share technology with developing world farmers Biofuel Demands • Yield technologies to help meet demand for both food and fuel Healthier Diets • High oleic fats • Omega-3 Soybeans Commercialization depends on many factors, including successful conclusion of the regulatory process. 5
  • 6. Quality Seed and Innovative Methods are Revolutionizing Plant Breeding • Our breeders exchange 1M+ different “packages” of germplasm material annually • >50% of Monsanto’s corn hybrids result from intra- company crosses MOLECULAR BREEDING Accelerates the Rate of Gain Soybean Seed Chipper Automated Marker Analysis • Capability to analyze 10s of millions of samples • Over 40 million marker-trait associations provide detailed genome understanding SEED GERMPLASM LIBRARY Our Building Block for Better Breeding 6
