As you all know, ADM's policy is that we do not accept grain or oilseeds that
contain GMO traits that have not been approved in all of our major export
Over the past several months we have been closely monitoring the approval
process for Monsanto's Roundup Ready® 2 Xtend soybeans ("RR2X").
We received word this morning that RR2X has now been approved for import
in the European Union. It had previously received approval in our other
major export markets. Please let our merchandising staff at all of our
grain elevators and processing plants know that they are now permitted to
receive these beans.
