For the Ag industry as a whole, this is an excellent opportunity to spur compe3tition and low seed and pesticide prices in the market. If a Syngenta-Monsanto merger happened, there would be another round of massive layoffs in the industry in addition to the ones already recently announced by Monsanto, BASF, Bayer and Dow-DuPont. If the acquisition goes through, it will prevent the "Big 6 AgCo's" from becoming the "Big 4 AgCo's" by the end of the year because BASF and Bayer will not be able to fight their shareholders intense pressure and demand to merge. The biggest loser in this deal will be Monsanto because they have a dwindling trait royalty stream, an empty/static trait pipeline, no chemistry and their only long-term play being in the high-risk biologicals space. After Monsanto acquired Climate Corp, they made a critical error in strategy by the divestment of the insurance and precision planting groups in Climate Corp. As the rest of the World is accepting the proposed deal, it seems that any concerns about this deal might be being orchestrated directly from St. Louis.
