Despite cutting nearly two thousand employees, Reuters reports Monsanto is set to introduce its new corn and soybean products next year.

These lines are projected to provide a third of gross profits in three years and expects a launch on 10-12 million acres. The new products are Genuity SmartStax corn and Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans.


Further news that the company’s restructuring plan will provide significant cost cuts helped push Monsanto shares up 42 cents at $78.50 in pre-market trade on the New York Stock Exchange.
