08:08 EDTMONMonsanto reports Q2 Seeds and Genomics sales $4.18B
Reports Q2 Agricultural Productivity sales $1.02B. Monsanto said Q2 results were aligned with the company’s guidance, with its performance reflecting in part the previously outlined expected shift in gross profit from the U.S. Channel seed brand business of approximately $275M from the second quarter to the third quarter. This was balanced against strong soybean performance in South America and the United States. In Agricultural Productivity, the decline in gross profit was primarily volume related, as the company continued to convert from non-branded to branded volumes of Roundup, which is shifting gross profit to the second half to support key application windows for over-the-top sprays.

Monsanto said the Seeds and Genomics segment gross profit growth percentage for the full year is now expected to be low-to-mid-single digits, while the company’s Agricultural Productivity gross profit is still expected to be down approximately 10% versus the prior year due to anticipated generic glyphosate price softening and an incremental 2-to-3% due to deteriorating currencies.

Analysts expect soybean acreage to rise 3% from last year to 85.9M acres and corn to fall 2% to 88.7M acres, according to a survey by The Wall Street Journal taken ahead of a U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast due Tuesday.

13:39 EDTMONMonsanto addresses assessment on glyphosate by IARC
Monsanto Company further addressed last week’s assessment on glyphosate by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. “We are outraged with this assessment,” said Dr. Robb Fraley, Monsanto’s Chief Technology Officer. “This conclusion is inconsistent with the decades of ongoing comprehensive safety reviews by the leading regulatory authorities around the world that have concluded that all labeled uses of glyphosate are safe for human health. This result was reached by selective ‘cherry picking’ of data and is a clear example of agenda-driven bias.” The repeated safety assessments by regulatory authorities over the last three decades have formed the foundation for the long history of safe, highly effective use of this important agricultural tool in more than 160 countries around the world. Decisions regarding product safety and approvals for pesticides are governed by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Commission, as well as independent scientific advisory bodies such as the European Food Safety Authority. IARC has no regulatory authority and its decision does not impact glyphosate’s label, current registration or use. “Safety is the top priority for every person who works at Monsanto. Glyphosate-based herbicides on the market meet the rigorous standards set by the regulatory and health authorities who work every day to protect human health, and we want our customers and consumers to be assured of these evaluations,” Fraley added. In contrast to the comprehensive review that regulators around the world have completed over three decades, IARC issued its classification based on a limited data review after hours of discussion at a one-week meeting. Further, IARC is one of four programs within the WHO that have reviewed the safety of glyphosate and their classification is inconsistent with the assessments of the other programs. Two of the WHO programs – the Core Assessment Group and the International Programme on Chemical Safety – both concluded glyphosate is not carcinogenic. The WHO Guidelines for Drinking-Water Quality program concluded glyphosate does not represent a hazard to human health.
