INDIANAPOLIS & WEST POINT, Iowa -- December 06, 2012

Dow AgroSciences LLC, a subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW),
and M.S. Technologies LLC have unveiled Enlist E3™ soybeans as the brand name
for the industry’s first-ever, three-gene herbicide tolerant soybean. This
advanced technology was submitted for U.S. regulatory approval in August 2011
and is anticipated to be launched in 2015 pending U.S. and import country
approvals. Enlist E3 soybeans will be brought to market in high-yielding
varieties, widely available in multiple brands for farmers who want improved
weed control and high yields.

The Enlist E3 soybean event developed by the companies includes, for the first
time, three herbicide tolerance genes stacked together as part of a single
genetic event in the soybean genome. These genes provide tolerance to Dow
AgroSciences’ new 2,4-D product, glyphosate, and glufosinate. Enlist E3
soybeans will be another product offering in the Enlist™ Weed Control System.

“Enlist E3 soybeans will set the new standard for weed control and yield
performance in soybeans,” said Lauren August, M.S. Technologies. “This
first-ever three-gene stack event has been packaged in high-yielding elite
germplasm from M.S. Technologies which, when combined, will allow growers to
maximize per acre profits.”

“Farmers need solutions for ever-increasing weed challenges, and Enlist E3
soybeans will enable exceptional weed control delivered from the Enlist
system, combined with the latest advancement in soybean technology,” said Tom
Wiltrout, Seeds and Traits Strategy Leader, Dow AgroSciences. “Enlist E3
soybeans will be offered throughout the industry, providing seed companies and
soybean growers another choice to advance their weed control and deliver
improved yields.”
