  3. 3. Non-GAAP Financial Information This presentation may use the non-GAAP financial measures of “free cash flow,” and earnings per share (EPS) on an ongoing basis. We define free cash flow as the total of cash flows from operating activities and investing activities. A non-GAAP EPS financial measure, which we refer to as on-going EPS, excludes certain after-tax items that we do not consider part of ongoing operations, which are identified in the reconciliation. ROC means net p g gp , income (without the effect of certain items) exclusive of after-tax interest expenses, divided by the average of the beginning year and ending year net capital employed, as defined in the reconciliation. Our presentation of non- GAAP financial measures is intended to supplement investors’ understanding of our operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace net income (loss), cash flows, financial position, or comprehensive income (loss), as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United St t U it d States. Furthermore, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used F th th GAAP fi il tb bl t i il d by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures used in this presentation are reconciled to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, which can be found at the end of this presentation. Monsanto is unable to provide a reconciliation of the 2009 ROC goal to projected net income and financial position for 2009 with out unreasonable effort. As shown in the ROC reconciliation for the previous year, the calculation of ROC is complex and Monsanto does not have sufficient information at this point in year complex, the fiscal year to reasonably estimate its operating profit after-tax and average capital for 2009 due to market and other conditions that our outside of Monsanto’s control. 3

  8. 8. FINANCIAL OUTLOOK 2009 Earnings Expected to Follow Seasonality of Recent Fiscal Years Q4 Q1 • Historical loss reflecting full SG&A and R&D • Earnings: Driven by Latin America – both spend against smallest sales base in year seed and Roundup sales • Earnings: Top line generated primarily by • Early orders begin for U.S. seeds, however Roundup and other glyphosate-based sales are not booked until shipment SEPT ▼ herbicides and vegetables • Vegetables and Roundup and other glyphosate based herbicides glyphosate-based S sales spread relatively evenly • Cash: One of primary periods of cash Q4 Q1 throughout year collections, reflecting U.S. season • Cash: Reflects pre-pays associated with early U.S. orders JUNE ▲ DECEMBER ▼ Annual Earnings Calendar • Historically largest quarter, increasing seed-and-trait shift Q3 Q2 • Second strongest quarter behind Q2 into Q2 • Earnings: Driven by seeds and traits • Earnings: Driven by U S seeds and U.S. MARCH ▼ – Continued soybean traits – Strongest quarter for cotton, reflecting U.S. – Particularly N. Hemisphere corn and U.S. corn and India seasons traits – Soybean seed and trait split roughly evenly with Q3 • C h U of cash t f d working capital needs Cash: Use f h to fund ki it l d of business begins to build, reaching peak in Q3 mid Q4 Q2 8

Monsanto estimates, based on better insect and weed control over conventional options • Trait Penetration Effect 2. Monsanto estimates, based on farmer surveys quantifying benefits such as convenience and peace of mind • Competitive Reaction 3. Retail price range for YieldGard VT Triple in 2009, at seeding rate of 2.7 acres per unit 4. Subtracts costs farmers would have spent had they not used a trait package 9
