ST. LOUIS, June 17, 2013

ST. LOUIS, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Computerworld has named Monsanto
Company one of its Best Places to Work in IT for the third year in a row.
Monsanto ranks No. 25 on the 2013 list of the top 100 work environments for
technology professionals.

"This honor truly reflects Monsanto's culture of innovation and the
opportunities we provide so all our employees are able to embrace it," said
Melissa Harper, Monsanto's vice president of global talent
acquisition/diversity. "Success doesn't come from simply hiring the best and
the brightest. It comes after you get them here then keep them through engaged
meaningful work and the continued development of their skills."

Judges compiled the list based on a comprehensive questionnaire of a company's
offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development,
training and retention. In addition, Computerworld does an extensive survey of
more than 27,000 IT professionals working for U.S. headquartered companies.
Editors cited that at Monsanto information technology is fully embedded into
the company's everyday business as seen in the agricultural leader's first
IT-driven product platform, Integrated Farming Systems^SM (IFS). IFS uses
proprietary algorithms to help farmers decide which seeds to plant in which
sections of their fields. Computerworld also noted the benefits Monsanto
offers workers as well as the company's diversity as key reasons for the
company's high ranking on the 2013 list. Monsanto employs thousands of
information technology employees around the world and is always looking for
talented IT professionals.  Those interested in a career with Monsanto should
