Monsanto Co along with its subsidiaries provides agricultural products for farmers. Its seeds, biotechnology traits, herbicides and precision agriculture products provide farmers with solutions that improve productivity.

Monsanto Co was incorporated in Delaware on February 9, 2000, as a subsidiary of Pharmacia Corporation. The Company is a provider of agricultural products for farmers. It offers corn, soybean, cotton, wheat, canola, sorghum and sugar cane seeds. Its segments are Seeds and Genomics and Agricultural Productivity. Through its Seeds and Genomics segment, it produces seed brands, including DEKALB, Asgrow, Deltapine, Seminis and De Ruiter, and it develop biotechnology traits that assist farmers in controlling insects and weeds and precision agriculture products to assist farmers in decision making. It also provides other seed companies with genetic material for their seed brands. Its seed competitors in row crops are also licensees of its germplasm or biotechnology traits and a few of its vegetable seed business competitors have licensed biotech traits for sweet corn or genetic improvements through advanced breeding. In certain countries, it also competes with government-owned seed companies. Its biotechnology traits compete as a system with other practices, including the application of agricultural chemicals, and traits developed by other companies. Its weed- and insect-control systems compete with chemical and seed products produced by other agrichemical and seed marketers. Competition for the discovery of new traits based on biotechnology or genomics is likely to come from agrichemical companies, smaller biotechnology research companies and institutions, state-funded programs and academic institutions. Through its Agricultural Productivity segment, it manufactures Roundup brand herbicides and other herbicides and provides lawn-and-garden herbicide products for the residential market. It competes with numerous manufacturing companies for sales of agricultural herbicides.
