 Monsanto has numerous products in its pipeline that
 will reinforce key franchises or serve as platforms
 for growth. The years noted here reflect the

 medications available today have the potential to
 cause serious gastrointestinal damage, such as
 ulcers. Celebra is currently being evaluated in
 Phase III clinical trials to determine if itís
 effective in treating arthritis without causing
 damage to the stomach, intestines or kidneys.

 Daniplestim
 This blood cell growth factor stimulates bone
 marrow to rapidly replace white blood cells

 with tabletop and commercial processing
 applications.

 Orbofiban
 This oral anti-platelet agent is designed for
 long-term use in preventing secondary heart attacks
 and blood clotting from myocardial infarction.

 gene that allows the plant to protect itself from
 the boll weevil.

 Carotenoids
 This natural pigmentation is for use in animal
 feed.

 Developed through biotechnology, these corn plants
 will resist fungal and viral diseases and offer
 improved yields.

 Disease-Protected Wheat
 These wheat plants developed through biotechnology
 will resist fungal and viral diseases and offer

 coagulation and modifies inflammatory processes.
 Tifacogin is currently being developed to treat
 sepsis, a potentially life-threatening condition
 resulting from severe infection of the blood.

 Ultrapure Algin
 This food ingredient will have biomedical
 applications, including the management of diabetes.
 

 [Image]
 [Image]
 Research and development of products based on new
 technologies is by its nature high-risk. It's
 typical for large numbers of products to fall out
 of development at various stages in the process.
 Monsanto is fortunate to have removed only three
 products from the pipeline shown in our 1996 annual
 report.

 BXN Herbicide-Tolerant and Bollgard
 Insect-Protected Cotton
 Monsanto and Stoneville Pedigreed Seed Co. have
 been developing cotton that is both tolerant of
 Buctril herbicide and insect-protected. However,
 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is
 currently reviewing Buctril. Therefore, the cotton
 will be sold for its insect protection, but farmers
 canít treat the crop with Buctril.

 Improved Strawberry Crops
 Monsanto sold its strawberry business in 1997.

 Inulin
 This product will not be launched in 1999, but may
 be commercialized in subsequent years pending
 additional evaluation.
