MONSANTO TO INVEST $100 MILLION IN SEED PLANT EXPANSIONS
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Monsanto announced intentions to expand their Jasper County, Ind. facility. The Remington, IN location is just one part of a three state, four site, $100 million investment. Upon completion, the expansion is expected to add to the facility's current 55 full-time jobs.

According to InsideIndianaBusiness.com, construction is set to begin in December and is should be complete by the fall of 2013.

This is part of a larger expansion that includes sites in Iowa and Nebraska and is expected to result in a substantial increase in seed corn production for Monsanto.

Nebraska site

Monsanto has announced plans to expand its seed production facility at Waco, Nebraska.

Monsanto officials say the Waco expansion is part of a more than $100 million investment it will make at four seed processing plants in Nebraska, Indiana and Iowa. But they say the majority of those dollars will spent on the Waco facility and another plant located in Remington, Indiana.

The expansion announcement for Waco comes just a year after Monsanto celebrated the opening of the $135 million seed plant, which employs 70 people full time. The expansion will add more jobs, but officials weren't clear on exactly how many will be added.

Company officials say the expansion will also increase the number of acres of seed corn being grown within about a 50 mile radius of the plant.

The company hopes to have the expansion complete by next fall's harvest.
