INDIANAPOLIS & WEST POINT, Iowa -- June 19, 2013

Farmers in Canada will have access to the latest innovation in soybean
technology as Dow AgroSciences LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow
Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), and MS Technologies LLC have received approval
for Enlist E3™ soybeans. Canadian regulatory authorities have approved Enlist
E3 soybeans, which are part of the Enlist™ Weed Control System and the third
Enlist trait product approved in Canada. The Enlist E3 soybean trait was
evaluated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada
(HC), and was approved for food, feed, and environmental release. The
companies anticipate launching Enlist E3 soybeans in 2015, contingent on
approvals in key export geographies. Enlist E3 soybean cultivation
registrations are also being sought in the United States, Brazil, and other
South American countries.

The Enlist E3 trait stack confers tolerance to 2,4-D, glyphosate, and
glufosinate. It is an innovative molecular stack that brings all three
herbicide tolerances via a single transgenic event, presenting a unique
advantage for customers of Dow AgroSciences, MS Technologies, and future
licensees. Because the Enlist E3 trait is a single genetic event, breeding
efforts can quickly advance superior performing soybean seeds for farmers.

“Science continues to provide the base for solutions needed by farmers in a
world of scarce resources and ever-growing population,” says Daniel R. Kittle,
Ph.D. and vice president, Research and Development at Dow AgroSciences.
“Enlist E3 soybeans illustrate how novel technology can be used to accelerate
innovation and address significant weed challenges while providing the
performance farmers must have to remain competitive.”

“Driving the agricultural industry forward starts with elite germplasm and
great traits,” said Harry Stine, Manager, MS Technologies. “Enlist E3 is
breakthrough technology that will help farmers optimize their yields and meet
growing demand across the globe.”

Enlist is a next-generation system that combines innovative traits,
herbicides, and stewardship to deliver weed control that farmers need now
while sustaining beneficial farming practices. Enlist corn and Enlist soybean
traits were approved in October 2012 in Canada for food, feed, and
environmental release and Enlist Duo™ herbicide was approved in Canada in May
2013.
