Monsanto announces agreement with Brazilian grower organizations Monsanto Company and leading grower organizations in Brazil announced that they have reached an agreement that will support the introduction of next-generation products like INTACTA RR2 PRO soybeans. Under the agreement, participating Brazilian farmers will secure a new license that will allow them to purchase soybeans containing the new INTACTA RR2 PRO technology, expected to be available in the 2013-2014 growing season. The agreement also provides clarity on first-generation Roundup Ready soybeans for participating farmers. Those farmers will be released from payment of technology royalty fees for first-generation Roundup Ready soybeans for this and next season, while waiving all potential legal claims for payments previously made for this first-generation technology. Farmers who elect to not participate will continue to pay royalties on that technology through the term of Monsanto's intellectual property rights in Brazil that cover the first-generation Roundup Ready soybeans. Monsanto had previously excluded the contribution related to the company's first-generation Roundup Ready soybean business in Brazil from its EPS and free cash flow guidance, reflecting an estimated historical annual range of 20c to 25c.
